Hello from Wales

Post by RavenclawLotus »

Hi everyone!

I've been reading about Buddhism for the past four years but I'm trying to bring Buddhist practise into my life.

I'm hoping to find some form of an online sangha to help me with my practice.

I'm looking forward to speaking to you all!

There are Dharma centers in Wales. Here are two Kagyu centers I have visited:

90 minute train ride north of Cardiff by train.

https://ahs.org.uk/events
Remote. Halfway up the west coast.

I know there’s a group in Cardiff too.
1.The problem isn’t ‘ignorance’. The problem is the mind you have right now. (H.H. Karmapa XVII @NYC 2/4/18)
2. I support Mingyur R and HHDL in their positions against lama abuse.
3. Student: Lama, I thought I might die but then I realized that the 3 Jewels would protect me.
Lama: Even If you had died the 3 Jewels would still have protected you. (DW post by Fortyeightvows)

Croeso i Dharmawheel!

དམ་པའི་དོན་ནི་ཤེས་རབ་ཆེ་བ་དང་།
རྟོག་གེའི་ཡུལ་མིན་བླ་མའི་བྱིན་རླབས་དང་།
སྐལ་ལྡན་ལས་འཕྲོ་ཅན་གྱིས་རྟོགས་པ་སྟེ།
དེ་ནི་ཤེས་རབ་ལ་ནི་ལོ་རྟོག་སེལ།།


"Absolute Truth is not an object of analytical discourse or great discriminating wisdom,
It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified."
- (Kyabje Bokar Rinpoche, from his summary of "The Ocean of Definitive Meaning")
