The Purpose of By Chance Buddhism

Since there are all these amazing blogs out there for people interested in Buddhism and Buddhist principles, why add another? All I can say is my sense of purpose is based on a gut feeling about a definite gap between what Buddhism is and what it is perceived to be by those who have never been truly exposed to it.

So why do I feel compelled to fill that gap?

I felt that Buddhism has made such a positive impact on my life, I really want to share basic principles with others who are interested, but who also have had little or no prior exposure to Buddhist Philosophy. I in NO WAY claim to be an expert on the topic, and so please note that my posts relate directly to my personal experiences, and also what others have shared with me. However, I think that my discovery (and previous obliviousness) of Buddhism were fairly typical for a Western practitioner, and therefore feel that facilitating discussion of Buddhism from this perspective might be beneficial.

For some direction on where to begin, or to find posts that might interest you, please see the labels listed on the right. Thank you for visiting!

May all beings be happy!
