Greetings from Ohio
#1
Greetings Dhamma Friends _/\_
I am solitary lay practitioner living in Central Ohio, USA. 

I started to really get into Buddhism about 3 years ago and mostly through a lot of the usual Mahayana sources. With exposure to Pai Canon I was drawn more into Theravada as I came to see that only Theravadan Buddhism offered something unique in its straightforward approach to transcending suffering. A lot of what's in Mahayana is interchangeable with any other form of mysticism, and I came to the conclusion that release from samsara is what interest me most, not just vague feelings of Unity and interconnectedness.

I came to this forum to hopefully learn more about Insight meditation practice in the Mahasi tradition. I am about to start reading 'In This Very Life', and thought this might be good place to ask questions.

My daily practice now is 25 minutes of breath meditation or Metta, some chanting and Dhamma study. I also work on my morality by the 5 precepts.
Thank you _/\_
