• Buddhism and Stoicism

    Do you practice either (or both)? I got into Stoicism a few years ago, but I felt like it was not complete enough. I'm currently learning about Buddhism, and I find there is a lot of overlap between the two philosophies.

    I don't know if I'd call it practicing it, but I've been interested in
    buddhism for some time since college. I like the interconnectedness that
    it, IMO shares with hinduism - being nice to each other helps us as
    well, since we're all interconnected.

    Tim Ferris, the podcaster, talks a lot about stoicism - check him out if
    you haven't already. I downloaded Seneca's works after listening to him
    talk about it.
