Ask a Buddhist!

1


1 per unit Virtual OK

Having a Spiritual Crisis? Want to know what a Buddhist would say about your current situation? Just can't find the right answer on Wikipedia or don't know where to turn? Ask me and I'll answer your question to the best of my ability!

Buddhism is a rich and noble spiritual tradition that comes in as many flavors and forms as Christianity. In fact, "Buddha" simply means teacher. Buddhism is laid out much like a map: to get to point B, travel through point A first. To travel through point A, you will need items C, D, and E. Thus, the Four Noble Truths are the history of man and mankind. To end the suffering of the Four Noble Truths one must take refuge in the Three Jewels and follow the Eight-fold Noble Path. Many Buddhist even recognize many saints and leaders of Christianity as Bodhisattva or beings dedicated toward a path of spiritual enlightenment!

Training & Qualifications


I have studied Buddhism for many years from the age of 17 to present (I am currently 31 earth years in this lifetime). I've taken many retreats at the Nyingma Institute in Berkeley, CA and study Zen Koans weekly.

Availability & Preferences


If you ask a question, I should be able to deliver a response within 12 hours.

Trading Preference: I prefer being paid in simbi

Other reviews indicate River is great to work with but I got nothing but delays, cold communication and then no response or explanation for over a wee...k. I would not recommend her services. I am out the money I sent her to ship a parcel months ago that I still have not recieved, but at least I kept the Simbi. I will update this if the supposed parcel she sent in September ever arrives.show more
