Hm...after nearly 2 decades, I truly feel the need to know more about my religion aka Buddhism...Took me a while to realize that it's not just a set of teachings etc, it provided me with answers when I needed them most...
I've never had formal religious education. My earliest memory of knowing my religion was when I was browsing through my report card as a child & saw that under Religion/Agama was the word "Buddhism". I asked Dad what it was, & he just said that that's my religion. So then I began to learn the difference of Buddha & Buddhism so that I'd write the correct thing when I filled forms by myself.
Then when I arrived at uni, it made me realize there was a lot I didn't know so I started reading it up online (har har)...I found that I took the word "Buddhism" for granted & I ought to start learning a bit about it now.
