About

This blog is about Buddhism. Not an expert’s teachings about Buddhism, not the musings of an enlightened lifelong practitioner, but the observations and discoveries of a complete newbie.

As I delve deeper into the rich seam of wisdom that is the Dharma, I plan to write about it here. I’m sure I’ll make mistakes along the way, but that’s part of the fun of discovering new things!

Feel free to leave comments, corrections, even criticism – but please be constructive and courteous. Remember, this is all new to me and I’m only just getting started.

  1. Hi Barry.

    I read your reply on another comment thread (http://beobjectiveblog.com/2015/03/03/the-big-secret-atheists-wont-tell-you/comment-page-1/#comment-154), clicked on your name and got here.

    I must say I am in complete agreement with your worldview in regards to atheism and so forth. Recently I have become more and more interested in Buddhism as a philosophy / lifestyle, although I am quite repelled by the religious / supernatural elements of traditional Buddhism. As an atheist, I guess you must have come across the same objection? How do you see this issue? Are there any resources you came across that you could recommend?

    Best Regards

    Jacques
