Hello everybody, my name is Jeff.
I have been curious about Buddhism off and on for the last 6 years. Beginning with introductions to Zen from my cousin I started out reading "The Three Pillars of Zen" by Philip Kapleau. Now I am crossing over to find myself more inclined to Theravada teachings. The past few years in this life have been a struggle for sure. I've become more angry, less open to new ideas and generally being a less than good person, but now that is getting put behind me. I am living this life to follow the 5 precepts, the noble eightfold path and becoming a better person for the good of my family and others.
I'm glad to be here and hope I can practice and learn with all of you!
