I have recently finished two university courses dealing with Buddhism and Eastern Religions. The history and culture of the East is so very rich. I am very impressed with the manner in which Buddhism was able to spread from India into China; the core values of Buddhism have remained, though traditions and rituals are flexible and vary from region to region.
Anyway, I am delighted to join a community where I can share my thoughts and feelings about Buddhism, and learn other people's perpectives as well ^__^
Maybe we should toss about some koans for discussion ^_^;;
