    Namaste!

    Hi everyone,

    Found myself wondering about Buddhist thought on suicide which led me to BWB and Wishbone Ash's thread on this topic. Great discussion, and it included an interesting link posted by Aloka-D (nicetomeetyouandthankyouverymuch) to "Cittaviveka" which included the sections on "Metta" and "Kamma and Rebirth" which really resonated with me. Lost a loved one to suicide this past year and this has prompted me to contemplate death and rebirth and suffering and karma - and has certainly challenged my notions of nonattachment and compassion and forgiveness ...

    Anyway, glad I turned off the tv hours ago and discovered your forum! Nice to meet you.
