What drew you to Buddhism?

My own experience of suffering, and the realization that meditation could help

Have you had any realizations that can be shared?

No answer yet

Do you subscribe to any particular lineage?

I am a Mahayanist; I have practiced Zen and studied Tibetan Buddhism. I think that there are valuable teachings and practices in many Buddhist lineages, and that we do not necessarily need to restrict ourselves to just one.


Hello everyone! I teach Buddhist and Western philosophy at Binghamton University. Together with my colleague, Bandula Jayatilaka, I founded this sangha about 3 years ago. Through our practice, may all beings find happiness and the end of sorrow.
