Hello and welcome to Coffee Cup Dharma! This is a platform to discuss a variety of Buddhist topics and Dharma in a casual manner, as well as occasional non-Buddhist philosophy and events.
Let me introduce myself. I’m a high school student, self practicing Buddhist and avid enthusiast of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I have hopes to become a inpatient neuropsychologist, travel the world and become a BJJ Coral Belt (The second highest attainable rank within the greatly respectable sport and way of life!) I read a lot of Dharma and Buddhist teachings/philosophy but have never practiced at a temple or under the guidance of any sort of teacher. But I do read up a lot and I hope that some of my insight will help give you some thoughts (or hopefully the reverse if we are talking zen) on what it means to be both a Buddhist or just a person in today’s modern world. I hope to interact with my audience a lot in the future.
