Hello

Post by Ukigumo » Thu Dec 06, 2012 10:19 pm

Hi All,

I am kind of an electic solitary practitioner. I practice the meditation I was taught at a Chan monastary, and study Buddhist literature from the Pali Canon, Prajnaparamita, and Madhyamaka commentaries to the best of my ability. I would like to officially join a tradition, but having had a disruptive life for the past few years that involved moving around a lot, I simply haven't had the chance (I currently live in an extremely rural area, far from any sangha).

I decided to join this forum because I was very impressed by the quality of the postings here, and I would like to thank the members and administrators of this forum. I have benefited very much from reading the discussions here. Looking forward to meeting everyone and to future discussions.

Warm welcome, Ukigumo. Remember that forums can be fun, but they can also be distracting. A little at a time and then practice tells the rest of the story. Best wishes!
