: Hello and Greetings Neighbor! I live in Budd Lake, which is in northwestern New Jersey. Like yourself, I discovered the Dhamma (Dharma) through books. A good next step is to contact others to discuss and learn more about the Buddha's teachings. There is a retired fellow in West Orange, NJ who runs an informal Buddhist educational and resource facility out of his home and once in a while has gatherings with other Buddhists from the area. His name is Tony Bucci, and his phone number is (973) 736-8957. Of course, you can e-mail me if you like, my e-mail is BuddMar@usa.net. Finally, although it is quite a distance, I've learned much from the Abbott (Bhante)Piyatissa of a Buddhist Monastery in Queens, New York - not far from JFK airport - called the New York Buddhist Vihara; 84-32 124th St., Kew Gardens (Queens), NY 11415; (718) 849-2637. If you want to practice meditation with others, theres the Shambhala Center in midtown Manhattan, which has numerous courses and activities. Good luck on your spiritual journey!
