    My interest in Buddhism comes from a recognition of Dukkha and Buddhadhamma as being the only way to overcome it.

    The only belief I have is if I practice well, then there will be Nibbana. However through practice initial belief becomes verified through experience and is transformed into knowledge. The come and see approach :)
