Hello!

Post by nomad » Sun May 10, 2009 1:10 am

Hello everyone! I’m a new student to Buddhism and I’m currently researching Tibetan and Zen, but I’m finding myself drawn to Theravada teachings. I’m also a member of another board and hope that the two can compliment by studies and help me find my own path. Nice to meet all of you!

Awesome! Thanks for the info. There are so many different schools of Buddhism that it's difficult to know what is right for me. So right now I'm just testing the waters of a variety of things. Thanks again!

Hi
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
John Stuart Mill
