Lately I have been more and more interested in devoting my life to the study of Buddhism. I feel that being able to study Buddhism is something that I would really want to do. The problem is that I have a girlfriend whom I live with. I haven't brought this up to discussion with her because I don't really know what to say! Hey Sofia, I think I want to devote my life to buddhism and serving other beings.
Hmm, I don't think so...What should I do?
I have talked with my mother and she thinks that I should follow my heart and if that tells me to become ordained, then that is what I should do.
I would appreciate any suggestions on this subject. May I also add that this isn't something that I just made up. I relly feel that I want to become ordained and I believe that if I do I have the right motivation.
