Greetings to all,

My name is Andrew Bowen, creator of Project Conversion (, an initiative in which I fully immerse myself in one religion each month for the entire year.

This month I'm exploring Buddhism and I'd like to hear of your experiences--especially those regarding the discovery of the tradition. What were your challenges? What attracted you? Was there any reaction from family and friends?

What tradition of Buddhism do you follow? There is also a section of the website where folks can share their own "conversion" experience. Would love to have you folks drop by.

You must have moved on.

Last night I participated in an Asperger syndrome support group meeting. And I was shocked at the attitudes of the normal carers and health professionals! So today I did the Belief-O-Matic quiz. And I scored top for Theravada Buddhism! I recommend this Beliefnet quiz to others.
