Greetings from an old geezer in Canada!

Post by Just Jim » Wed May 20, 2020 11:59 pm

Hello and thank you!

In the of introducing myself - I'm 65 and took Refuge around 4 years ago now, but struggle with some aspects of Buddhism. I'm hoping to find some input here. I expect my questions are nothing new, so I'll do some searching in the forums before I ask any bonehead questions.

Thanks!

Jim

Welcome from another old geezer.
1.The problem isn’t ‘ignorance’. The problem is the mind you have right now. (H.H. Karmapa XVII @NYC 2/4/18)
2. I support Mingyur R and HHDL in their positions against lama abuse.
3. Student: Lama, I thought I might die but then I realized that the 3 Jewels would protect me.
Lama: Even If you had died the 3 Jewels would still have protected you. (DW post by Fortyeightvows)
