For more years than I care to remember I have been interested in and a practitioner of meditation. Why? Well it keeps me sane for one thing and also along with Buddhism as a philosophy,it is a framework for making sense of this life.
While I don't necessarily slavishly follow all the doctrines of the various Buddhist schools I have yet to find a 'spiritual tradition' which speaks to me so clearly. Indeed part of the appeal is that Buddhism asks you to question, test and seek proof of it's truth before you believe. If you are would like to see some more of my views, questions and relationship to Buddhism go to the ' Buddhism. My personal exploration ' page.
