Hi from Sydney Australia!

Postby Mandi » Wed Jan 23, 2013 2:03 pm

I'm Mandi, and I'm new to the forum and to Buddhism. I'm very early in my studies, and I've found the Sydney Buddhist Centre which I'll be dropping into soon, which will hopefully be informative and helpful.
If you want to know anything else just ask! I'm glad to be here!

Hello Mandi! Welcome to Dharma Wheel!

Good to see you have found a Buddhist centre near you. I advise newbies to shop around a bit with centres before settling down. See how you feel about the people and the teachings. There are many different approaches to Buddhism, some appeal to some, others appeal to others.

Hi Mandi :smile:
When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself. Perception is not reality. What appear to be faults in others may actually be reflections of our own emotional afflictions. I don't have an attitude problem; you have a perception problem. Remember the way people treat us is their karma. The way we react is our own.~ Trulshik Rinpoche
