Re: Greetings and Intro
- View SourceHello, everyone ! I have been here for awhile, reading everything
with great interest. My buddhist beliefs have settled somewhere
between the disciplines of the Zen koan and the beauty of Amida and I
am very grateful for groups like this.
I have to admit, I still must have 'beginner's mind' because I never
had a Buddhist teacher to study with so I've just been walking with
the Buddha for as many steps as I can manage (I have Multiple
Sclerosis and it has affected my cognitive functions quite a bit.
Repeating the nembutsu has been a huge benefit since there are so
many days when I can't wrap my mind around the long mantras of the
Tibetans or wrestle with Zen koans).
I look forward to learning more here and I thank you for this
