Im very interested in Buddhism and have been researching for a little while now, but I dont really have access to local centers since there arent any nearby. The closest are hours away. Is there any sort of initiation? And if so, is it required to be done at a Buddhist temple/center or can it be done alone? (Also, what are some good resources to study/learn about the different sects or groups of Buddhism or Buddhism in general?)
