    Part of me will always be Baptist, but right now I'm kind of pan-monotheistic with emphasis on Abrahamic traditions, esp Baptist Christianity, Islam, sometimes Orthodox Christianity, Rastafari.

    Could I ask what that entails? I usually get the picture of a druid from Diablo II or WoW. Not to offend, though. =D

    EDIT: Oh, and I'm Christian, with Baptist leanings.

    I'm an Asatruar, although a bit more of a lowlander. I'm unaware of any special name for that. You can just call me a Heathen.

    Tibetan Buddhism. There are four specific schools of learning/studying/practicing Tibetan Buddhism - Sakya, Nyingma, Kagyu, and Geluk. I practice Geluk, and it's most notable distinction is that His Holiness the Dalai Lama is considered it's temporal and spiritual leader.

    There is more specific definition at this site: Buddhism - Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition - and it describes what we do much better than I ever could. :)




    Peace,
    Mystic

    Hinduism / Love. :)

    I said "Love" because God is love and love is a uniting factor among all people.

    Hinduism is the term given to those following "Sanathan Dharma" which is a way of life where we must live according to righteous conduct; think how our actions affect others etc. "Sanathan Dharma" means "Eternal Religion."

    Buddhism, although I am a new convert to this philosophy. I tend to belong to the Theravada sect if you will, although I do believe some of the tantric beliefs. I don't pick a school and stick with it, because I'm a pretty lay person. I want to study all of the schools and gain a better insight. I would also like to study other religions altogether. Hinduism for example keeps drawing my attention, but I don't know where or how to gain proper knowledge on the subject.

    Does Druidism have anything to do with communing with nature/spirits?
