Hello to all who read this. I'm Sam Vega and I have recently discovered this site - it looks very interesting and has a good feel about it.

I am mainly interested in the Theravadan tradition. I live near to Chithurst Monastery in the South of England. I've been attending there regularly for about 14 years, and prior to that I practiced with what was then the "Friends of the Western Buddhist Order" for a couple of years. I first got interested in meditation through studying martial arts, and developed the meditation practice when the body started letting me down a bit....

Welcome Sam Vega !

How lucky you are to live near to Chithurst. I go to Amaravati when I can, but don't live near to there. I'm wondering if its ok for me to add a 2 on the end of your name and make you Sam Vega2 - or something of your choice. We had someone called samvega joined us a couple of days ago and so it could get a little confusing.

with kind wishes

Aloka
