An introduction to me.

Post by DaftChris » Thu Dec 06, 2012 11:06 pm

Hello everyone.

My name is DaftChris. I'm a college student studying psychology and still relatively new to Buddhism. I sometimes have my doubts when it comes to Buddhism, but it has helped me in many ways after I adopted it into my life. I was a Christian before and it never seemed to click with me. I dabbled in Taoism, Judaism and Hinduism before I discovered Buddhism, and while I'm still interested in other faiths and philosophies, I think I'll always be a Buddhist at heart. :)

Religiously, I lean towards Tibetan; but I'm open to other schools of thought. I also sort of believe in God, but more in a Deistic sense rather than Theistic.

I'm also a member of and I hope my time here is just as informative and inspiring.

Hope to chat with you all soon!

Hi DaftChris, and welcome to DW Mahayana! :cheers:

As to doubts, remember they are normal, and they are also a very good, healthy sign. It is natural and normal and intelligent to doubt...the only difference here is you also have your own practice, realisations, and undeniable experience/breakthroughs to balance those doubts.

So it is always doubt, faith, doubt, faith, doubt, faith, and so the practice flows. :smile:

Well wishes, and happy discussing!

Welcome from New York, US.
