Auckland - DCI

Fairly busy since I came here from Colville. We started the teachings with inspiration and auspicious prayers, then talking about the Perfection of Generosity. Yesterday, Saturday, all day we discussed Ethics and how to keep them and how to benefit others with Ethics. Today we will be talking about anger - a subject always interesting to many people and very applicable to city living.

In the breaks between teachings, I have been uploading soundtracks from teachings, editing, putting them on the web (now there are four episodes) and all that takes a lot of time. I have been working a little on the website, although not much is changing there at the moment. Catching up with friends from last year and having some good talks with Venerable Gyalten who resides at DCI. We watched a video of Lama Yeshe giving advice on how to develop western centres - for instance, in the city centres, Lama thought people should meditate for a short time then get up and dance and then sit down and meditate again! He was so far ahead of his time, I think we should be very proud (in a positive sense) of being the lineage holders of Lama Yeshe's tradition.

More teachings to download

I was amazed at the response to my putting audio teachings on the web. Here is another place you can find them, they were given in Latvia last year on the Lam rim and thought transformation.


My website is up and running, but certainly not perfected. Anyway, it is good enough for you all to be looking at it and enjoying the information that is there. Over time, I will phase out this blog and only use the website which contains a blog. You can join the website through "Subscribe RSS feed" and it will keep you updated. Please let me know if you have suggestions. With all best wishes,
Venerable Namgyel.
