Introducing myself/new to freesangha
« on: August 10, 2016, 12:19:36 pm »
Hi friends. I am new to this forum so thought I would start of by introducing myself.
I am a mahayana Buddhist and formally became a Buddhist lay practioner this year. I took refuge with the kagyu lineage at kagyu same dzong in London,  UK. 
I hope to make friends with fellow practioner and people who share a common interest in buddhism.
May all sentient beings quickly attain enlightenment.  :r4wheel:

Thank you for the good intentions.  Welcome to FreeSangha.
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.

Hi, I'm looking for spiritual communities. I was born Sikh but might have roots in Buddhism also. My last name is Sangha. I am a very quiet person and like the simple lifestyle. I want to manage my thoughts well and live healthy in mind, body and spirit. Glad I found this. If anyone wants to add me my skype is sharon_kaur3. I'm also looking for friends.
