traditions of Buddhism: PureLand, Tibetan, Theravadan, Mahayana,
Vajrayana and Dzogchen to the curious as well as present Buddhist
Practitioners. Present are a few Teachings, Texts and a note on
the practice of Tonglen. Courspondance Courses from authentic traditions
of Buddhism available. Information on Singapore Home grown Buddhist
societies and traditions in Buddhism....history of, who, what, and how
to contact these organizations. I see a little of that here, but I would like to
know more about Buddhism in Singapore.

resident of Singapore. I am learning dharma through experience in life.Though
textbooks help, but I strongly believe by walking the path personally or
experimentally is more fruitful. My daily life is very simple. Normally as a
routine, I wake up in the morning, meditate, clean up, reading newspaper, do
a little bit of household chores, have breakfast, walking under the sun, do some
volunteering works, have light lunch, a little nap in the afternoon, reading,
shopping for & cooking dinner, taking bath, watch evening news or movies somtime, and
finally meditate & sleep.

Comments : I am a professional engineer working in Malaysia. I started
to learn Buddhism (Theravada) when I was an undergraduate in the University
of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur. When I started work, I did not have the
opportunity (or was lazy) to follow through the teaching of Buddha. Recently, I have
the opportunity to join group in Mahayana Buddhism and managed to link my earlier
Theravada study with the Mahayana teaching.

Comments : I am a 36 yrs old female(single), Chinese Indonesian.
I work for a foreign investment Hkg manufacturing company in Jakarta as
an Admin Mgr. I have learnt Buddhism since 10 years ago,I come from a
Buddhist traditional family, but I attended the Catholics school for its
being discipline, since it's quite difficult to find a good Buddhist
school here in Indonesia. So at that time (before I learnt Buddhism) I
knew more about Catholics than Buddhism, but very fortunate my dad never allow
us to be Christian before we knew more (in depth) about Buddhism. My mom
passed away when I was 9 yrs old and my dad passed away in Jan. 1997.

I would like to have as much info as possible about Buddhism teaching
and also to know about Buddhist friends more. So far I only can seek the Buddhist
book in Buddhist bookstore, since in Vihara library there's not much
updated/new versions of Buddhist books.

Comments : As a committed buddhist, I take my faith seriously. Although
I took the precepts late, at the age of 48, I regard it as a blessing - the
doors to Buddha's Dharma were finally open to me.

I know there are lots more to learn, from sutras, from dharma talks etc. I
would appreciate receiving more information on "bettering" ourselves, through
this page.

about: name: feriks admadiredja nationality is Indonesia my delighted lenguages : spanish(espanol), english, italian(italiano), and french(francois)

at the begining i was a Buddhist, i only thought that Budhism is something like accustom or tradition, because I was not educated with "Real Budhism" by my parents, they said that they are Buddhist, but they just use Buddhist for identity (may be, if people ask them, what is you religion?'s just for identity) so i didn't get much lesson of Budhism.

But now, i've learnt it . wow! Buddhism is amazing, now i know who is LORD BUDDHA. I READ HIS UTTERANCES that really amazing, beautiful, bring peaceful for our heart.

I call Him, "Father of all fathers". yes, he is. because he told us how to get happiness(how to be goodthing!, NOT be "AN EXPERT OF PRAYING"), and prevent us from dangerous, chaostic. and told us how to be free from sadness and get eternal happiness. (I'M not telling that praying is not good, but it's secondly thing)

like, the most dangerous thing to us is gambling. people just realise it,if they've lost their money. but Lord have already told us compassionately that gambling make us "apayamukha"(fall down/INDONESIAN: RUNTUH.) and it's true.

so many acts that you can see in your live seem ok, but Lord Buddha have already seen that it's not ok. and He also have already told human what's good for you. wow! he is so ful of compassion to us. (i'm so sorry that my english not good, so i cann't tell what i want to tell precisely)

comment: amazing, magnificent, fabulous. and, i think you should translate the language into some languages(Indonesian, mandarin/chinese, malaysian) so we can also understand what is the cont
