Notes and Events:

Purpose –  I am willing to share my 20 ha of forested land so that others may live and work in native forest and with Nature, guided by Buddhist philosophy.

Teachings  Available Here  – I am willing to teach some forest meditation to a willing student, based on my experience of daily meditation practice since 1982.

My Buddhist Background - I trained at the Buddhist Society of Vic in the 1980’s under Dhammika, attended a variety of Buddhist meditation retreats in the 80’s and 90’s, attended talks each week at the BSWA throughout 1995, 96 and 2002,  and I trained in the Buddhist monastery 99-01.  

My Approach to Buddhist Philosophy – is non clerical; I adapt Buddhist ideas out of their original religious setting and into a form that reflects my own experience of following the Path since 1982.  I am most influenced by the writings of Eckhart Tolle, Shakti Gawain and Harvey Jackins.  I refer to Nyanatiloka’s works.

My 11,000 word treatise on http://noldorathforestcomm.weebly.com  defines my approach to Healing and Spiritual Practice.

Location - 25 km SW of Gin Gin, 4 hours drive North of Brisbane, in the foothills past the coastal plain.

Facilities - simple,  close to Nature  -  BYO camping gear and/or borrow mine

Transport - I can email you “Directions when Driving”,  or I can pick you up from the Greyhound  bus stop in Gin Gin

Cost – by donation and/or your labour contribution.

Meditation and inspirational readings - as needed by those present. 

Contact me  by email if you’d like to stay here, and detail your experience in Buddhism and/or meditation, and whether you’re fit for manual work (a man’s work!) or willing to pay for the Council rates ($40 pw) instead, and whether you’ll bring all your own camping gear.

Notes and Events:

The NZ Bodhi Study Group was founded in 2007. Most of the group members live in Auckland.

Of central importance in Buddhism study is to engage in systematic study to lead to correct conceptual development. The courses we take offer the basic, essential teachings; these include:

Prajna , Tibetan Pure Land Method, and Dzogchen

Master Khenpo SoDargye is the vice head of Seda Larong Wuming Buddhist Institute. Under his guidance, following the teaching system of Han monks, the NZ Bodhi Study Group involves free teaching and group study via the internet (language is Mandarin) . Specifically, you will receive systematic Exoteric and Tantric Buddhism teachings from Master Khenpo SoDargye, as well as tutorials from teaching monks. This involves either local group study or participation in on-line study group.

General Aims:

· Teaching and practice (equally important)

· Propagate Buddhism to benefit all the sentient beings

· Participate in charitable events and practice Buddhas spirit: compassion and altruism

Since the foundation of the study group, in addition the courses as above, we have taken part in the following: live broadcasting of the four grand Buddhism Gatherings of the Institute via internet: the Vajradhara Dharma gathering, the Dewachen Dharma Gathering, the Dharma event of the Kishitigarbha retreat, and the great Dharma event of Vajrasattva retreat.

Social and Charitable Events:

· Distributing Dharma books, DVDs, blessing goods from Master Khenpo SoDargye and other Masters of Seda Larong Wuming Buddhist Institute.

· Care for others: In modern society, due to high-pressure living, lack of balance between mind and body, a lot of diseases arise in human beings. In addition to traditional life care, we also advocate the healthy living style involving both the body and mind. If interested, we encourage people to study and practice Buddhism systematically using prostration and meditation – to help one realize the bad effects of negative thoughts and unhealthy lifestyle. The goal is to change ones attitude to their surroundings to achieve a happy, healthy life. In the meantime, we refrain from killing, set animals free, and occasionally hold free Chinese treatment and acupuncture for injury, and other activities for healthcare.

It is better to act than speak. We hope more people will join our group. Let us cooperate together to benefit all sentient beings, follow the path of Mahayana Bodhisattva. We also hope more people will open their heart through getting to know Buddhism, and you will consequently live a more peaceful, enjoyable life by reading your heart.
