The wandering monk completes 35 years in robes

Postby Mr. G » Tue Nov 23, 2010 2:54 pm

David Du Prez from Southern California developed an interest in Buddhism as a college student when he followed a course on world religions. His interest then was only academic. As a young man he served in the army (it was compulsory) with a stint in Vietnam as well. Returning home he was "experimenting with drugs, then playing the hippie while free-wheeling and dealing around half the globe to Nepal."

After meeting the Tibetan lamas, whom he refers to as his "gurus", he became more interested n Buddhism. He moved to India and got a taste of Theravada Buddhism when he followed a course by the renowned meditation teacher Goenkeji.

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche
