New to Buddhism.  I have read a few books and make a feeble attempt at meditation.  I hope to learn something from everyone here.   ;D

That's wonderful!  Welcome Sunya, Michelle, and Kodatech.  Our Beginner's Zone is still a bit bare, but we're trying to add resources as we go.

There are lots of very knowledgeable folks here!

May your time here be good for everyone!

Thanks for the welcome.  I will probably do more reading than writing, but I figured I would sign up anyway.   :cheesy:

Namaste Friends,

I was a member at E-sangha, which was closed down a while ago for whatever reasons. I've been on message boards for the last 10 years and find them a great was to share experience and grow.  I've practiced the Dharma since 02. I'm not sure I'd say I have a tradition that presides over another, so I've just enjoyed connecting and sharing in many Buddhist traditions.

Happy to have a community to speak with again.

In loving kindness :namaste:
