Greetings all

Post by Eddo » Wed Jun 27, 2018 6:59 am

Hello, I was raised Roman Catholic and was a fairly devout practitioner until march of 2017. My father got terminal cancer and died on march 29. After this I entered a existential crisis and found I was obsessed with and terrified of death. I found my old religion could not answer my questions. In December I ran across the Tibetan teachings of the bardo and began a search into Buddhism and found that this is what I believe. I am joining this site to learn from others. Forgive my ignorance on many topics as I am quite new to Buddhism except a brief stint in Nichiren chanting when i was in college 12 years ago. Thank you all and blessings to all. :namaste:
