Hello, I am a new member here if you couldn't have guessed. The main thing that brought me here was because I am fairly new to Buddhism. I've been practicing the Zen philosophy without knowing it was Zen until my friend (who is a Mahayana Buddhist) told me what it was called. Silly me had been calling it Nihilism and had been walking the path for a little under 2 years now.

To summarize, I'm 16, turning 17 in a couple of months, and have an obscure interest in philosophy and religion. Part of how I found this site was by searching for forums to learn more about Buddhism. Much of my knowledge on it has progressed from believing Buddhism is just a religion saying "Be nice and love all" to a much more complicated and informative outlook of it.

So, as you may not hear too often in introduction threads; introduce yourself. I'm new so I'd like to get to know the community I will be living with online.
