    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!

    Hi Fionnuala,

    Welcome to BWB, and thank you for introducing yourself.

    There are some pinned resources in our Discovering Buddha's Teachings forum which you might find useful.
