    Hi everyone, Thank you for having me. I’m Matilka and living in Taiwan for a little while. I’m in the process of trying to find my place in Buddhism and looking forward to learning from everyone’s thoughts and experiences.

      Hi, I’ve read quite a few Buddhist texts over the years but never sat down with the Suttas. I just sat down to listen to the Sigalovada Sutta and couldn’t finish it. It doesn’t sound at all like the Buddhism that I have known – it sounded like Christianity or Confucianism (and other belief systems as well). This wasn’t a positive experience but important to hear nonetheless and obviously part of working with ideas about life. So, in a strange way perhaps, thank you ! 🙂
