Hi, I'm new and would like to introduce myself

Post by DRS » Sun Jul 08, 2007 11:37 am

I'm from the Kent in England, male 53yrs old. On leaving school (I'm amazed I can remember that far back) I trained and made my living as a professional musician. I am now an accountant would you believe. I started reading Eckhart Tolle's book when I was drawn to it in a book shop. For me it struck the right cord - I'd long been interested in zen. Along with Mr Tolles life and works I'm also interested in Ramana Maharishi who in my opinion was that rarist of rare beings - a true adept, a master in the proper sense of the word. Anyway it would be great to hear from you.

Welcome DRS, good to have you with us. There is a thread in the Spiritual Teachers section from a long term Zen student. That would be Adyashanti. One of my favorites. We look forward to your contributions.

Welcome to the board. You're assessment of Ramana is right on the mark.
