    “You can’t test your courage timidly. You have to run through the fire, arms waving, legs pumping and heart beating, wildly with the effort of reclaiming something vital, lost, laid aside or just plain forgotten. When you do that, you discover that we shine most brightly in community, the whole bedraggled, worn, frayed and tattered lot of us, bound together forever by a shared courage, a family forged in the heat of earnest struggle.” – Richard Wagamese




    Dear JenGo

    May I ask what aspects of buddhism are you drawn to?

    Are there several different buddhist groups in your area, if so it might be valuable to  check them all out, to see which style and group dynamic suits you best.

    I personally watch alot on YouTube my favourite is Srvasti Abbey there short BBC are excellent way to get to see how in my opinion how a good sangha works. My aspiration is to one day to be able to go there.

    Wishing you all the best in your spiritual quest.





    Being a father with a young child and the only one who believes in Buddhism in the family, it makes for a difficult time to find refuge in the three jewels of Buddhism. There are no reminders to practice or thoughts to reinforce the Dharma. Learning and growing just goes so slow.


    But we live in a time where we have such wonderful devices that can aide us to further our personal growth. Also, we can get to forums where the community helps us. Sangha is important as it reminds us to practice and give effort to that practice. And, others can help us along our path.


    I wish you well. Please find your way home. Three things that can not be hidden for very long … The sun, the moon, and the truth.
