Hi from the sunny UK
« on: December 28, 2015, 03:16:38 pm »
Hi everyone,

I have been interested in meditation on and off since my late teens, but it is only since I've been in my thirties that I have committed more and hit a point where I am maintaining a regular practice. I'm also reading (and watching youtube videos) about buddhist teachings, but it is mostly on my own at the moment. I thought this forum would be a great idea to be able to communicate and share ideas etc with other people, so here I am!   ;D

Hello from another owl in the UK,

I hope you would find useful information here. I mainly practice in Pure Land buddhism.  :buddha:

Welcome!  Which part of the UK are you living in, and have you checked out any local Buddhist groups?  Are you drawn to any particular schools or practices?

I'm on the Suffolk coast.

Helloo I am new to this site and have been interested in Buddhism for three years.  Only recently I have actually done  research and tried learning more to be a true Buddhist. I'm from the North west and it seems to be hard to find any local  Buddhist communities so I joined this site to try and learn more and to make Buddhist friends. Where abouts are you located?

Have you tried using this site to look for local groups?  http://www.buddhanet.info/wbd/
Not all the groups list themselves on there, but those that do should know what else is happening in their local area.
