Hello from New Orleans

Post by ScottL » Wed Dec 13, 2017 2:11 pm

Hello all!

I have been reading and benefiting from the discussion here for a while so I thought I should register and say hello.

I am 49 years old and live in New Orleans. I have had a lifelong fascination with Buddhism, beginning with reading Alan Watts when I was 12 or so.

I have been a practicing Buddhist since 1996, taking refuge with HH Penor Rinpoche.

I am grateful to be here and look forward to learning from you all.

Scott

Laissez Le bonton roulette. Wish I could actually write what I'm trying to say. Do you have a practice group there in N.O.?

Laissez les bons temps rouler!

We do have a local community, centered in Tibetan House, a store and learning center, where they occasionally host teachers and have regular meditation practice.
