Still Seeking

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody

Since 2011 I have been following Buddhism but I have also found much inspiration in modern Druidry. In both of these subjects I have come across favourable references to Daoism so I guess it is time to explore further.

Hi rocala,

 

Yeah, I think you will find some alternate perspectives in Daoism that you don't find in either Buddhism or Druidry.  

 

You are welcome to jump right in ongoing discussions, revive an older thread, start a new thread of your own, or start a discussion in the "Newcomer Corner" sub-forms to expand on your introduction or ask general questions to help you get started.

Hi rocala,

 

Thank you for 'modern Druidry' - it is completely new to me.

 

Googled and like this on Wikipedia:

Neo-Druidism or Neo-Druidry, commonly referred to as Druidry by adherents, is a form of spirituality or religion that generally promotes harmony and worship of nature, and respect for all beings, including the environment. Many forms of modern Druidry are neopagan religions, whereas others are philosophies that are not religious in nature. Originating in Britain during the 18th century, Druidry was originally a cultural movement, only gaining religious or spiritual connotations in the 19th century.

The core principle of Druidry is respect and veneration of nature, and as such it often involves participation in the environmental movement. Another prominent belief among modern Druids is the veneration of ancestors, particularly those who belonged to prehistoric societies.

 

Your linkages (Buddhism + modern Druidry + Daoism) are in good order. I like.
