Introduction from Dai Zhi Qiang (Jon Dyer) NZ.

Postby Dai Zhi Qiang » Sat Aug 14, 2010 12:23 am

Hi,

I just wanted to introduce myself briefly.

My name is Jon Dyer (aka Dai Zhi Qiang) I am 33 years old and live in Lower Hutt, New Zealand.

I have been interested in Buddhism and various forms of Eastern thought for the past 17 years, in fact it was my martial arts training that led me to discover the Dhamma and various forms of healing (TCM, Reiki, etc).

I just wanted to meet and share experiences with other like minded people.

Metta

Jon Dyer

P.S, I am currently distributing some "Forest Dhamma Books" in New Zealand at the moment, so if you are from NZ and interested PM me.

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,

Welcome Jon!

:anjali:
To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.
