New to buddhism

Post by inthismoment » Wed Nov 07, 2012 5:31 am

I need some people to more thoroughly explain the teachings and give me the run downs on the basics of Buddhist rules. would also love to learn more about the different types of buddhism. It is very complex and I would like to find which branch fits me most.

Greetings and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
I suggest you check out our "Discovering Theravada" forum.
Within that forum is a pinned topic "introductory resources".
It might be something you want to check out.
kind regards,

Ben

Welcome inthismoment!

To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.
