I’ve really loved learning about the ideals of buddhism and I’m enjoying learning now about symbols. I love the stutues. My understanding is that I focus on what the idol symbolizes and not pray to them but I don’t understand why many buddhist pray to them or make them offerings. I don’t feel it’s the thing to do. I do totally believe in making them a thing of contemplation and a constant reminder. 3 years ago

Quan Am. I have a new statue from my brother. I love her. It took me a bit to figure out who she was. She’s the goddess of mercy. I loved learning about her. She feels motherly to me. She protects. 3 years ago
I love so much about what I’ve learned about this way of life. I’d almost delete the goal but there really is so much more to learn and I’m still interested. It’s made such a huge impact on my life and how I feel about everything everyday. 3 years ago
Will look here next but I have to wait until the holidays pass so I don’t become too overwhelmed with things to do. I just think there is where I’d like to go next. 4 years ago
writing entries about this goal but I work on it almost daily. I like the idea that if you can’t do something to help someone at least don’t do anything that hurts them. Just studying Buddhism has made a huge impact on my life. I’m a much calmer person and eveyday annoyances are let go almost immediately. I find it second nature now to be empathetic and to see others points of view. I was even lucky enough to see the Dahli Lama over the summer. It was amazing. 4 years ago

working on this goal. I want to learn some more about Buddhism before I look into another eastern religion. 5 years ago
I have read several books on the subject but like most religions these are confusing. I’m just very curious especially about Buddhism. Maybe there’s a Buddhism for Dummies book. I was raised Catholic but as an adult I realize that I cannot consider myself Catholic because I do not embrace the religion. 5 years ago
