Welcome to the
online web community & discussion forum of the Buddhist Faith Fellowship of Connecticut and the North American Shin Buddhist
Association (NASBA), which is fondly called Shin-dig. This virtual spiritual community is on Yahoo Groups and is free. You just need
to sign up and join.
This Buddhist web community
has been designed to unite our main Middletown Connecticut community with
its chapters and affiliated groups and to connect with people throughout the world, in order to deeply explore the topics
of Shin Buddhism, to share aspects of our practice, to engage in book discussions, ask questions, glean support for personal
issues, and participate in community. The web community is especially good for “isolated Buddhists” who need community
in order to enrich their faith and practice.
The only rules are that you
must be respectful and keep discussion relevant to the group—which means being kind in disagreement, no profane language
and no solicitation.
We also ask that you write
under appropriate subject headings, so that others may easily follow a thread.
Please send an initial post
to the group under the heading of “Introduction.” with such information as your name (first only is fine if that’s
all you are comfortable with), where you are from, and something about your practice so we will know who you are. Because
very few Buddhist Yahoo! groups are of the Shin tradition—and because this group is centered on practice and might be
of interest to those from other traditions—this is important for the security and integrity of the community. All are welcome.
