Hey there!

Post by TravisM » Fri Jan 26, 2018 2:06 am

Hi everyone! I live in the Seattle, USA area and have been studying the dharma for the last year or so, gradually getting to know its different flavors and building my practice. And it's been a really interesting journey, given that I started out interested in a purely secular Buddhism and most recently have been very interested in Pure Land. I've just started visiting a local meditation center to try to find a good sangha. It's nice to meet you all and I'm looking forward to the discussion!

Welcome from Portland :) I also started out secular and came to follow Pure Land after a few years.
