Reading over the boards I am delighted to recognize some old friends and look forward to coming to know new friends.

My country is the country of Dharma. I traveled there overland in the winter of 1971, there was a war on.

"...Remembering your guru’s kindness to teach you during this degenerate age after Shakyamuni Buddha has passed away, you must develop loving respect for him. He teaches you despite your delusions and does not force you to undergo the hardships that many disciples had to endure in the past. He gives you initiations and oral teachings and transmits the unbroken lineages that come from the Buddha himself. He inspires you to attain his state and helps you materially when you need it. Without loving respect for your guru you will never become enlightened; if you don’t respect the state of buddhahood he represents, how can you hope to attain it?" ~ Geshe Ngawang Dhargyey, Fifty Verses of Guru Devotion

with all best wishes, Jane aka Jangchub Chodron
