Hello

Post by thansz » Mon Apr 09, 2012 10:02 pm

Hi,

I came across this site a while ago during my investigations of Buddhism. While I'm currently not a buddhist, I find many of the teachings useful and believe the Theravada teachings to be about as close to what the Buddha probably taught (although I am no scholar). I found this to be a very helpful site and enjoyed many of the postings here. Members seem very helpful and some member postings have definitely made me rethink certain positions.

So I just wanted to introduce myself and say hi to the group!

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
