    Hi everyone

    I’m new to Buddhism in general, not just this forum.

    Over the last week or so, I’ve had a strange urge to look up Buddhism, so I did and I found out that it’s very applicable to me. I’m still learning, and I don’t know a lot yet, but I’ll get there.

    For context, I live in a Christian country and went to a Christian school (there weren’t any non-religious schools in my vicinity.)

    While I was there, we had to go to mass several times a year, and I felt no connection and frequently described myself as atheist/agnostic, and that only changed when I looked up Buddhism.

    In my country, there doesn’t appear to be any ways to develop and explore Buddhism with others, so I guess I’ll have to keep an eye out, and in the meantime rely on the internet to teach me.

    I find that Buddhism isn’t the easiest religion to learn about, as there isn’t an awful lot of resources out there, but through time, I’ll hopefully understand it more!
