This Buddhist discussion forum is devoted to the study and practice of the teachings of the Buddha.
Our aim is to facilitate discussion across the boundaries and cultural differences of individual Buddhist traditions, in order to focus on the meaning and practice of the Buddha's core teachings.
We encourage free enquiry and critical exploration of Buddhism in the modern world. Progressive Buddhists who can share their experience and understanding, as well as practitioners who have an interest in Early Buddhism and the Pali Canon Suttas, are welcomed into the community.
In a spirit of friendship and discovery, we look forward to developing knowledge and insight with you in our Buddhist Forum, with the sincere wish that we can all extend deeper awareness into our everyday life and Dhamma practice.
Newcomers to Buddhism as well as non-Buddhists will find information and study resources here in our discussion group, as well as a beginners section. Questions may be asked and answered in an atmosphere of warm friendship and respect for the individual seeker.
Buddhism Without Boundaries has several discussion forums on site which include Discovering Buddha's Teachings

We also have a popular General Buddhist Discussions
