Chile

This is a long shot....but I am looking for Buddhists in Puerto Montt area of region X Chile. I know no one here, and think I may be the only one.

Apparently not :(

I am sure there is no official gathering.

I wish there was a drop in centre, like you can find in the UK.

Nevermind, if any individuals read this, from this area, I am willing to make contact.

My teacher just returned from Argentina and Chile where he consecrated a Stupa.
I'm not sure where, but there may be something closer than you think. I'll ask next time
I see him.

Don't know whether or not this is in the area you are looking for but it was worth a try:

Maybe you can ask them or start your own group and invite a Lama? How is Chile btw?

I'm a bit to busy to go organising groups......plus, I'm not fluent is spanish, I'd find it tough. I am sure there must be a buddhist or two about.

It is nice here thanks, I have only been here just over a week. I'm bit lonely, but my meditatation is getting me through.

Understood. All the best. I know how hard it can be to move countries. Exciting but dreadful at the same time. And a bit lonely at times.
