This is a similar reply to the one I gave below. Have a look at the Teachings page of this site for a start, Richard, then maybe find a Centre nearby (there's an FPMT one near you I think)where you can meet some Buddhists and hopefully, a Lama. When I first started doing this, it all seemed quite complicated and foreign (with the ceremonies etc) but now I realise that the important elements in Buddhism are really beautifully simple as far as their application to our everyday lives are concerned. Of course, to ACTUALLY apply these principles is a LOT more difficult!
