Hello, I welcome you warmly

Post by FallAway » Tue Aug 15, 2017 4:12 am

Hellos all around. I've been a practising lay Buddhist for almost a decade, on my own. I came into Buddhism through the Theravada teachings, looked into others from this safe home base and will likely remain with it.

Looking forward to learning and sharing. :namaste:

Thank you for your welcomes. :smile: Would like to tag you all but don't know how yet.

I'd like to participate in the study groups and discussions in time. Is there one particular version of the Canon that is used when we study as a group? If so, could I get a link or links to a free PDF download? Want to be on the same page as everyone else!

Still reading around...lots to click into, all very interesting. Will enjoy getting to know the forum and members of my new Sangha.

Thank you both. Enjoying the threads and discussions very much. I like the "keep it real" feeling I'm getting. Best place of all to practice in...the what is.
