Hi from Sydney Australia!

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:
If you’re practising Dharma, you practise it for enlightenment. Not for rights, not for freedom, not for justice, not for healing, not for getting better in a worldly way.
