Hey!  Catmoon.

We've got a Caz, but (I) don't know anybody with the last name you mentioned.

Welcome.  Enjoy your stay.  Relax.  Try not to think too much about The QEW.   :lmfao:
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.

Someone who as attended meditation classes (kadampa) for two years who finds the Buddhist approach to life leaves a lot of questions and supplys a lot of answers, thought it would not hurt to sign up and have a mooch on here.

Well, here again is the Webgoji (which should make Catmoon's fur stand on end and amuse Caz to no end).  I've been doing a little lurking and noticed that this forum lacks the usual name-calling nonsense and seemed to focus on more meaningful discussions.  So I thought I would give it a test to see how things went.

I have been an active member of The New Kadampa Tradition for about 2 years now (*run in zig zags, run in zig zags, they can't target you if you run in zig zags*  :wink1: ).  Even after the earnest work of my most kind resident teacher trying to tame this bull elephant of a mind I have, I still must profess an incessant obsession with Oreo cookies (I still swear they're inherently existent).

Best wishes to you all,

Hehe, yep.  I've been hiding.  How are you friend?  I've seen your trail on a few other forums I lurked about on, getting ready for the Summer Festival I would suppose?  Has Tara Center been doing well?

I did manage to go to both the Midwest and Southwest Dharma Celebrations in this past year (both times I had the amazing good fortune of being able to sit and talk with Gen-la Dekyong . . . what meaningful experiences).  I've been jonesing to have some meaningful discussions outside of answering questions for new students (it's kinda tough to debate emptiness teachings with someone who has never heard the term) so I thought I would pop on and say hi.

Soooo . . .

Hello! I'm new here :blush: I'm Sergio, from Spain. I live in a little (so-so) city up north, A Coruña. I started looking at buddhism a while ago, but I think I'm ready to take some more steps and take practice into my life and commit to it. It seems like the right time to do so. I'm specially attracted to the Tibetan branches: structured path, ethics, study, rules... Right now I feel more comfortable with that approach (at least that's my prior and external view of it). Anyway, I may have to dig further, but in my home city there are a couple of Tibetan Buddhist communities, and to them I will turn to. They're Gelug both, under FPMT I think.
Well, here I am, ready to learn and practice, let's go!

Sergio
