I was raised in the Roman Catholic tradition and still hold that
tradition in high regard. But during my undergraduate studies (while
writing my honors thesis on quantum physics) I discovered Buddhism,
especially early Mahayana and Theravada forms of Buddhism. Today,
I focus on the earliest scriptures of the Buddhist tradition--the Pali
Canon--both as a scholar and as a practitioner. I seek a "naturalistic"
kind of religious experience that is consistent with modern science.
I would say I'm more of a Buddhist than anything else. I am a vegetarian
and adhere to many of the general principles and beliefs of Buddhism
(though there are many different beliefs and schools of thought within
Buddhism). I read from many different spiritual disciplines and take
what makes sense to me and leave the rest. I guess that makes me sort of
a spiritual opportunist :-).
