Hello from California
#1
Hello! I first took refuge about 4 years ago which is the point when I became Buddhist. The intensity of my meditation practice is of a waxing and waning nature, but my refuge and respect in the Triple Gem is quite solid.

I don't follow a particular meditation tradition strictly nor have I in the past, but I certainly see the value in this. I could see myself practicing in a tradition on a retreat, when circumstances allow. My meditation practice is based on my understanding of suttas such as the Satipatthana and Anapanasati suttas as well as others.

My main special interest in Buddhism are the early texts, mainly the 4 main Nikayas. I've read all 4 in translation and am in the slow process of doing it again. The wisdom and means to practce Dhamma within them is immeasurable. One day I may even learn Pali to read them like that, but that may just be wishful thinking.  Smile

Thanks for inviting me here, Bhante Pesala.
