We are a friendly community of Buddhists and those interested in Buddhism, here for the discussion of Buddhist philosophy and meditation in its various forms. You don't have to be a Buddhist to join us, you just need an interest.
This is a place for those new to Buddhism and experienced practitioners alike. Even if you know absolutely nothing about Buddhism, please post, and ask any questions you may have. We don't follow a specific tradition of Buddhism, so you will read perspectives from all different traditions, which can be very helpful.
Guidelines for posting:
- Please avoid personal attacks, in severe cases they will be moderated - Inter-religious/lineage negativity: debating is fine, but bashing should be avoided - Topics can relate to Buddhism, or to any other beneficial topic not directly related (health, wellness, Japan, China, a soothing song, etc.) - Inflammatory off-topic posts, or trolling, is not allowed - 18+ or "not safe for work" content is allowed, if placed under an < lj-cut >, provided it is relevant to the community and the other guidelines.
