Hi everyone :)

I'm Helen, I'm 32 and from England. I am currently not a Buddhist but have a growing interest in it and want to know more. I currently consider myself to be agnostic whilst I am from a Christian background originally (although I was brought up secular).

I'm not sure what else to write here, except that I hope to learn a lot from the forum.

Welcome, Helen. :smile:
Those who, even with distracted minds,
Entered a stupa compound
And chanted but once, “Namo Buddhaya!”
Have certainly attained the path of the buddhas.

-Lotus Sutra, Expedient Means Chapter

I think each human being has things to find out in his own life that are inescapable. They’ll find them out the easy way or the hard way, or whatever.

Hi Helen! Welcome aboard. Using the search function, you can find a lot of good info on Buddhism here. Also, if you have a question, just ask. There are a number of very knowledgeable people here on different Buddhist traditions. Depending on where you live, maybe there is a Buddhist community in your neck of the woods that you may want to eventually make a connection with.
