I see many of you are following a teacher and a sanga located in your city,
but Is it nessesary? can you follow the path alone or do you need guidance from a teacher
Unfortunatly for me the nearest buddhist sangha are 4 hours from my town,
so Iam on my own, so to say hehe. In my town there are like 6 christians sekts and they
dont know much about buddhism, only that buddha was one guy with a big belly.
So I dont have any experience with a "live" sangha and a face to face teacher,
I guess there are many benefits...
Iam following the theravada tradition, I found this tradition most understandable, learning by reading dhamma and learning by doing (but just on my own)
