I thnk there is a bit of truth in every religion and respect every single one of them, I am not Buddhist but agree with may of their ways.
I'm not a particularly religious person, as I have my own religion that only I believe in, but if I had to pick one, it would be Buddhism, because it seems like such a peaceful religion (it is also the closest thing to what I believe).
I first came to Birmingham in 1976 to stay with Sayadaw Dr. Rewata Dhamma. In those days we stayed in a terraced house in Handsworth. Later we moved to Edgbaston. I ordained as a Buddhist monk in 1979 and went to Burma to practise meditation.

i would like to become a buddhist but i am truely not sure yet because i do enjoy learning about it but i am struggling to decide. maybein time because i still am very young
I have been following Buddism for a few weeks now, and have given up meat and alcohol. I have been to the Tara centre at Etwall Derby, but I am troubled by some of the statues - Dharma protectors. I will continue to follow Buddism and I am looking for somewhere else for guidance.
i am really interested in buddhism and i am thinkin of turnin buddhist
It all started when I was in my Religiousn education class when i discovered buddhism, I had never had an interest in buddhism. How ever when we were studying it in class I really liked and how it was so different from the other religions. I looked more into buddhism and I become more and more interested in it! I know think of myself as a buddhist. I follow the eightpath and go over my 5 precepts! Being a buddhist has changed me and my life, I know look at things in a differnt way.
MEditation at this and other centres has helped lift my depression and anxiety so much more than anything else. I am really glad I found it!
They say don't knock something unless you've tried it,so I did try it,and found it very suitable for me.
