Kia or a from New Zealand

Post by Dayleb » Wed Sep 26, 2018 11:53 am

Kia ora everyone
My name is Dayle and I live in Dunedin in the south island of NZ. I was introduced to the Dharma around march this year after 20 yrs of agnosticism preceded by 10 yrs as an initiated wiccan .
I believe I have found my path. The local gompa here where teachings are given is Dhargyey Buddhist Centre. Founded by Venerable Geshe Ngawang Dhargyey in the 1980's i think. . It is gelugpa lineage . I have not yet taken refuge as i have yet to properly investigate my potential spiritual teacher etc but intend to do so. Currently reading voraciously and going to teachings and pujas and watching a lot of HHDl videos and others. I've also set up a daily practice based on lamrin through the books liberation in the palm of your hand by Pabongka Rinpoche and guide to the bodhisattva way of life by Shantideva.
I am totally enjoying both the intellectual stimulation and practices involved in my journey.
May all my studies be to the benefit and enlightenment of all sentient beings. :reading:

Welcome! Always nice to see new people :smile:
With a heart wandering in ignorance down this path and that, to guide me I simply say Namu-amida-butsu. -- Ippen

If in your heart you hold the thought, "I shall continue to utter the nembutsu," the Buddha will turn his attention to you, and thus you are one among those who are thought about and cherished. -- Master Hōnen
