Hi, everyone.

I'm new to this community, just joined up a few minutes ago. My friend is a Buddhist, and I'm a Christian. The things we've talked about over the last few weeks that I've known her (we were co-workers, that's how we met!), she's told me a lot about her religion, and having formerly been Christian herself, and knowing that I myself am a Christian, it's really fascinating to see the parallels of our religions.

I don't know much about Buddhism, and everytime I hear the word "Buddha," I always think of the jolly chubby man laying on his side or sitting "Indian style" with a big smile on his face. I wasn't aware until she and I got to talking that there are different Buddhas for different things in life. She's really shown me a lot about Eastern religions and what-not, and a lot of what she's telling me about, I'm wanting to learn more, hence my joining this group.

My hope is to meet some new friends and learn as much as I can about this religion I know so little about.

Thank you. . .

Actully...Buddha is a title...It means "enlightened one."

I think what you're doing is awfully dangerous. I would learn more about your CURRENT religion, if I were you.

I appreciate your concern, and I thank you for the note. :) I am working on my . . . . situation. I've not turned away from God (this time), as I have so many other times in the past. I'm just curious about what my friend's beliefs are so I have more of an educated idea. I'm not planning to convert, I'm just a curious party.
