Greetings from the Netherlands

Post by Genshinzen » Fri Feb 05, 2016 11:18 am

Greetings to all,

I come from a city called Zoetermeer in the Netherlands. I have been interested in Buddhism for a long time now. Ordering many books by wonderful teachers to gain more knowledge and insight. So far I can see that there is a goldmine of information and warm hearted people here. Lovely to meet like minded people and have some great discussions on this forum.

Metta!

Glad to see someone from the lower realms here. :D

I only visited the Netherlands once, but I enjoyed my stay there for a few weeks.

Welcome Genshinzen!

When I was a kid, I had the opportunity to visit the Netherlands (Amsterdam and Edam).
I would never forget such beautiful places, Edam was so peaceful and charming, and the Cheeses from the place! So delicious!

One of my favorite countries without any doubt.

Hope you will feel comfortable on this nice and warm community. :hug:

Welcome! Hope you enjoy your time and have many fruitful discussions.
