Welcome Emmet. Glad to have you here.
A Buddhist discussion forum on Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism
Hi Douglas - that particular group ceased activities at the end of 2016 and the blog was deleted. Buddhist LIbrary Camperdown still has many other talks and regular presentations, you can find them at buddhistlibrary.org.au.Douglas Westbury wrote: ↑Mon Jan 07, 2019 6:08 pmNamaste dear Wayfarer !
I tried the link to your blog ... http://dhammagroup.blogspot.com/ ... but it must be out of date by now ...
Do you have a new link ? I would be interested to follow up on this !!!
Many thanks !!!
Namaste Seb !!!hermitseb wrote: ↑Tue Jan 08, 2019 1:34 amHello there, I am Seb, from Canada. I'm a lay resident at a monastic retreat center in Canada, and thought I would come and join this forum once again. I used to post here occasionally, a long time ago, but I dont recall what name or email I might have used, and besides, I was probably a child, in terms of understanding anything at all, back then!
I'm a bit of a recluse and a hermit, though not 100% - one has to live in this world.. Especially in chilly winters
I am not sure what else to write, but hopefully I will be able to learn a lot from you folk here (as opposed to a random non-buddhist forum with misc spirituality where I hung out before this), and maybe even contribute a word or two, here and there!
Kathy--Without knowing just where on Nova Scotia you are, there is a newly formed retreat center near Baddeck, formed by Kagyu monastics who've left Gampo Abbey. There is also Terry Henderson's Big Hill retreat center, but I don't know if they host regular sittings.KathyLauren wrote: ↑Sun Dec 16, 2018 9:55 pmI never noticed this thread before!
I am 64 years old.
I eventually got married and moved out to the one of the Gulf Islands on Canada's west coast. The islands were full of original and neo hippies, and I was not surprised to find another group to practise with out there. More recently, we moved to Nova Scotia. In spite of the presence of the Shambhala organization here, I have not found any meditation groups close enough to practise with, so I do a daily practice on my own.
Hi, Chris. I replied to your PM. Thank you!Silent Bob1 wrote: ↑Tue Jan 08, 2019 7:14 pm

I hope this helps.
Lama Zopa is really great!Karmazangmo wrote: ↑Sun Jan 20, 2019 2:19 amHello my name is Karma Tutob Zangmo. I have been a buddhist since 1999 when I took my refuge vows with my husband by a very old lama. In 2004 in April I received my bodhisattva vows via Lama Kathy Wesley of the Karma Kagyu lineage. My Root guru is Precious One, Lama Zopa Rinpoche. I have been a student of his since December 2004.
You shouldn't post all of that.
