OK, Any Buddhists in here??

Posted by NikkiT2 on November 28, 2003, at 19:03:01

After having a period this year of yearning for some spirituality in my life, I have tried and tried to get into "main stream Western religions", but it just isn't for me.

So I've been falling back to a previous interest in Buddhism.
This was awakened in me the first time I visisted South East Asia (Malaysian Borneo, awesome place.. Everyone should go there!) and visisted a temple and talked to Buddhist people.
Then in 2002 we spent a month in Thailand, on an island we'd visisted for 10 days the year before so had friends there, and I spent quite a bit of time discussing it with a friend, Veera. he took me to their temple, introduced me to the monk that lives there, and I felt such peace.

I want to do a course at my local Buddhist center, but thats not possible right now. I've been reading some of the Daili Lama's work, but would really like to know more about the fundamentals of Buddhism.

So any reccomended reading, or websites, or anything else would be highly appreciated. Or just general advice on how not to look like I'm doing this just to be trendy (I live near Notting Hill, and a few years ago it was THE trendy thing to do among the trustafarians (the under 30's living on daddies trust fund, who try to look like they're squatters etc!) and so has a bit of a "jumping on the band wagon" kind of reputation around here)

Thanks for reading rambles!
