Hello All
« on: November 22, 2009, 02:39:13 pm »
Just to introduce myself....I used to be Quiet Heart on the e-sangha forum...so I'll use that here also.
I regret very much the loss of the information and study matierial pertaining to many paths of Buddhisim that e-sangha had accumulated over the years. I hope that this forum will soon start accumulating something similar.
Just for the record...so you know where I "come from" I came to Buddhisim via a Taoist philosophical viewpoint and Zen. So I may be commenting to the posts of others from that viewpoint. I hope that doesn't offend anyone.
I try to avoid any criticisim of anyone who expresses their views honestly. After all, who am I to say what is right and wrong. Life is to short for that, anyhow.
I hope this forum will be a sucess, and it will help to spread knowledge and understanding to all...whatever their views and path.
By the way...do I have the unofficial privilage of being the oldest one on this forum?
I'm 63 years old.
Just curious.

Hello Quiet Heart, and welcome.

I am sure that Zen is perfectly welcome here.
I have one foot in the Zen camp myself, even though I have recently restarted my Vajrayāna practices.

I look forward to your input.  :)

Welcome Quiet Heart!

I don't think your viewpoint will be any problem. :) If this will turn out anything like old e-sangha, we'll be a very mixed bunch.
My actions are my only true belongings.
I cannot escape the consequences of my actions.
My actions are the ground on which I stand.
