Hey Michael. I figured that old post was just long forgotten, especially since it didn't stand out as an indented thread. Glad you brought it back up.
My practice has been 1 year in Japanese Zen, and about 8 in Chinese Zen (Chan). My main study is in the Sutras used in Chan and the "bone dry" Theravada (Pali) Canon that Savaka spoke of. I have only read a bit of scripture used by Tibetan Buddhism but what I have read has made a strong influence. As for Dharma books (non-scripture), they're all interesting, and most have been of benefit.
: Hello there, I was reading older messages and found one by David S. (10/11/00) which was in response to one of mine. At the end David asked what school of Buddhism I practiced... I didn't respond because I hadn't knowed he posted. Anyway, what I want to know is what school or schools influences your practice the most? Personally, I find I like Zen Buddhism... I don't study that only, I have read more on Tibetan Buddhism, but it is Zen that holds the most interest for me, and the lessons and practices of Zen are what I base my own practice on more. Please, I'm curious what schools affect who. Thank you. Also David, the reason the responses on this forum tend to end on top, rather then below and to the side, is that this forum code is buggy and becomes incapable of correct function. Chances are you've noticed that already... I hope Tony's new forum comes soon. Metta.
