Greetings from a new buddhist
« on: July 14, 2015, 03:31:21 pm »
Hello!

I just took refuge in the Three Jewels on my own, in my bedroom and in front of all my buddha statues. I recited the Three Jewels' Prayer: I take refuge in the Buddha, I take refuge in the Dharma, I take refuge in the Sangha, and I act in their name.

Now I'm happy to finally have become a Buddhist in a more or less official way (even if I used to see myself as a Buddhist even before I had taken refuge), but I'm afraid I still have a lot to learn about Buddhism. This is why I joined this forum, to keep learning, and also to get to talk about Buddhism with other Buddhist people.

I'm really pleased to meet you.  :namaste:
