I’m just another 26 year old Dharma punk currently residing in the general Memphis metropolitan area. I have lived a rather itinerant lifestyle, as I have lived and traveled to many different states in the contiguous United States.
I have had the very fortunate opportunity to study and practice with various schools and groups, most of which were Theravadin and Mahayana Zen. Since I do not have access to a local Sangha at the moment, I had my refuge vows certified again by Bhikkhu Samahita and entered the Saddhamma Sangha on January 4, 2011.
This blog simply serves as an extension of practice. I guess by that I mean its an attempt to deepen my own understanding, while hopefully sharing the Dharma with others in the process. If I’m lucky.
The title of my blog (40 Oz of Bad Karma) is a reference to the second track off of the self titled LP by the late, great punk rock band Hickey. The song, of course, has nothing to do with Buddhism. It’s just a catchy tune and the name has stuck with me.
