I Want to Become Buddhist

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 50 People

    I know Buddhism is about finding your own truth,

    but I want some Buddhist friends and maybe even someone who can help me find my way in all of this. I decided to turn to Buddhism from being Agnostic because I felt so alone in my spirituality, sharing love is so beautiful and I want to share my love of life with others who...
