I'm Perry, I'm only 18 (nearly 19!
) and I've been studying Buddhism since last September. I'm leaning more to the Theravadin tradition but I'm in no rush to call myself anything other than a simple Buddhist for the near future.
I have always been interested in Buddhism, but it wasn't until I read Ven. Dhammika's fantastic "Good Question Good Answer" back in September that I became serious about it.
Unfortunately I know nobody in person who is a Buddhist, so therefore 100% of my Buddhist studies have been via the internet and books. Hopefully this will change next week as I have a session with a local Buddhist monk.
Dhamma Wheel looks great, so hopefully I continue to contribute here.
