    I'm Maria and I have been studying Buddhism for some time now. I attend a Tibetan temple when I can, and read bits and pieces from many different texts that I have collected over the years. I have found that by practicing the disciplines, even to a small extent, I greatly improve my interactions with other people, and things turn out better.

    I attend a Buddhist temple associated with the Dalai Lama. It is very pretty and brings me great serenity, which is of course totally self-serving.

    I think you know more than I do, but I believe its Mahayana. I could be entirely wrong. I focus more on concepts of "right" thinking/action then names, dates, and so on. And, of course I should focus on the other as well.
