10:35 am - Mod Post: DISCUSSION QUESTIONS.
Hey all. I don't know about you, but it's a lovely morning in Denver, CO and I just finished my morning chanting. I thought it might be neat to have a discussion question--maybe once a month or just every so often--what do you think? I'll kick it off with these starter questions about a certain topic:


Past lives are an aspect of many (if not all) Buddhist sects: the belief of reincarnation or rebirth.

-Do you agree?
-Have you had experiences with a past life?
-How do you convey the idea of past lives to those who are curious?
-Please feel free to write anything in response to the topic of "Past Lives".

I'd like to ask this here:

I was wondering how many different sects we have in here? If anyone would like, I would love for you to leave a comment naming your sect and how you practice, and perhaps an experience in your life that you link specifically with your practice.

My answers.Collapse )

02:02 pm - I just wanted to share...
A photograph I took while doing volunteer work in Sri Lanka after the 2004 Tsunami. I wasn't a practicing Buddhist at the time, but I have a new appreciation for this photograph two years later.

This temple is located in Kandy, Sri Lanka atop a hill overlooking the city. Truly beautiful.

I made this community because I left another Buddhist community that doesn't (I feel) embody kindness or respect very well. But I hope more members will join this place:
