Hi from Down Under

Post by pineblossom » Thu Mar 10, 2011 12:02 pm

Hi all.

From the land Down Under - Australia. Have been a Tibetan Buddhist for some time but have only just come across this forum. My favourite texts are those by Longchenpa.

See you out on the playground.

I lived in Melbourne for 15 years, but I was born in New Zealand, but my parents were Greek migrants and I have been living in Greece for the past 14 years. Does that mean (for you) that it is partially nice to see another partial Aussie on board? :tongue:

Well, we do live in a ethnic village but I just wonder if I was the lone representative from down under. I lived in Melbourne until about 10 years of age. Been a Queenslander for longer than I care to remember.

Hi There Everyone, I'm in Sydney... I registerd both here and Dhammawheel sometime ago but I have limited internet access these days so i'm around much. I practice Theravada mostly but i'm interested in all dharma, particularly zen & lately korean seon.... I don't beleive in limiting to oneself to any particular thing and never deviating. if you find dharma there it's useful....

Hi from USA and will be visiting Australia in a few days. Buddhism is prosperous in Australia as far as I know it.
