Hello,

I practice Tibetan Buddhism, and my posts will probably reflect this. I also love the X-Files TV show and anything ancient and mysterious.

Welcome Jackal.

If you wish to post about Buddhism, there is a religion board here and a spiritual wisdom one too!

Glad to see you here.

We were just in a Tibetan Buddhist retreat center recently, by the way, in Arizona called "The Garchen Institute". It was wonderful and was my third time there. I always leave there with a sense of peace and stillness inside me. Here is the website of the place we were at.

Gah! Holy crap! You were at Garchen Rinpoche's temple! No wonder you get good feelings from the place! He is one of the greatest living masters of Tibetan Buddhism. Also he is a member of the Drikung Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism--the one which I feel the most strongly attracted to. It's funny that we're both attracted to the Drikung Kagyu. This sect has produced many great yogis (meditation masters).
