Hello from the North of England.

I'm new here and to Buddhism but the more I read the more it makes sense to me.

I look forward to joining in the forum conversations.

Welcome 80,

Look forward to reading your posts and replies.   :hug:
What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
-Dhammpada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

Welcome 80anthea

You will find lots of nice friendly people here who are willing to help and answer your questions

I hope you enjoy it here, and learn some new things as well.

May you be happy and free from suffering
The non-doing of any evil,
the performance of what's skillful,
the cleansing of one's own mind:
this is the teaching of the Awakened.

Hello, my name is Freya and I have joined this forum to share and learn and explore ideas about Buddhism. I have been striving for inner peace for as long as I can remember and have been impacted by what I have learned so far. I really look forward to being part of this forum and I just wanted to say hello to everyone. Warm regards to all.
