Well, hello

Hello all,

I registered because there some people here I like to read. As I mostly lean towards western Zen and am not terribly familiar with the Pali canon I guess I'll be reading here mostly.
It looks there won't be much sectarian squabbling here at least :lol:

Greetings Fruit,

Lovely to see you here.

Whilst there is indeed a Theravada focus here in terms of subject matter, we're doing our best to make members of all Buddhist traditions who are interested in learning a little more about the Pali Canon or Theravada Buddhism in general (either as a complement their current practice, general interest, whatever) feel welcome. If you see any way we can accommodate you better, please let us know.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Welcome fruitzilla. I'm in somewhat the same boat you describe and no one has bitten or banned me yet. :) Of course there's always the next post to consider. :jumping:

:hello: Welcome. Western Zen (I think) is somewhat similar to "Modern Theravada."
