hi everybody

Post by SamBodhi » Sat Dec 24, 2011 11:06 am

I am pung S. I got the name from a friend of mine trying to say "punk" when he had a cold. I just sort of stole it as a screen name here. I used to be something of a regular at a few other forums and stuff. I am interested in monasticism and Theravada. I used to tell people that my Buddhist practice sort of sat right on the line between zen and Theravada with most of my being on the side of Theravada.

I hope to get to know everybody here.

Welcome pung S!

Hi pung S. Good to have you here. Look forward to reading your perspective. I also enjoy a Koan or Dharma talk from a good Zen master.

Buckwheat,
The Zen Center close to where I live is one of the few places I have to meditate with a Sangha. Unfortunately, there is no Theravada temple within a reasonable driving distance. Also, a good part of my reading has always been from Zen authors (Thich Nhat Hanh, Shunryu Suzuki, etc.) In fact, I just recently read a book called The Zen Teaching of Bodhidharma translated by Red Pine.
