My name is Cory and I'm from Utah. The Mahayana made a really deep impression on me when I was a lonely and depressed gay teenager and it only took ten years of buffet-table spirituality, a horrible experience living on Mount Wudang in China, and an encounter with an African-American Lama for me to stumble onto (And off of) the path.
I took refuge about a year and a half ago and practiced with the sangha in Salt Lake City, UT before moving back to central PA. I miss my sangha a lot and think that discussion here is a good way for me to keep the teachings in mind, although I'm worried my ego is enjoying it way too much
Like many other obsessed fangirls, I am in love with Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche (not really romantically, but it might as well be). Hope that's not obnoxious.
I plan on attending the summer shedra with Khandro Rinpoche and Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche this year and hope to meet more sangha there.
my refuge name is Kunkhyen which means all-knowing; I only tell you this because I think my teacher gave it to me sort of sarcastically; I definitely have Hermoine Granger syndrome (Insufferable Know-it-All). Please knock me down a peg if you see this happening. Thank you Johnny Dangerous for already doing so
Thank you and good night!
