A Blog on Nonviolence (and a hello to everyone!)
« on: February 24, 2011, 08:02:28 pm »
Hey everyone!

My name is Johnathan and I am new to this community, though I have been studying Buddhism for a few years now :)  Since this is my first post, so I really hope that no one minds me sharing a link.

I have developed a passion for Buddhist philosophy and nonviolence over the past few years, and I have been blogging about the matter for a while now. I wanted to share my thoughts with some like-minded people :)

My blog is mainly about nonviolence and its application in the modern world. Sine this board pertains to Buddhism (which incorporates nonviolence as one of its central themes), I wanted to contribute my thoughts. I would love to get feedback/start a discussion on this topic!

Anyways, the link is: http://nonviolenceblog.blogspot.com/

I am really grateful to have found this board.  I'm looking forward to participating more!

-Johnathan

Welcome to FreeSangha, Johnathan, and thank you for sharing so much of yourself in your introduction! I think we have a section of the forum where people can share their blogs, but I can't find it at the moment.
