About Me

My photo
I have recovered from the disease of Alcoholism. I believe there is only one person really,.. everybody. And that peace of mind is everything. -So treat your neighbor as you would treat yourself, because your neighbor IS yourself. I think most of recovery is what I would call common sense, but that learning to be ordinary is a true gift very few people acquire. My ambition is to accept everything unflinchingly, with compassion, and therefore be intrinsically comfortable in my own skin, no matter what. I am comfortable being uncomfortable and am willing to go to any lengths to improve my life. I believe the Big Book was divinely inspired, and is extraordinarily powerful. Unfortunately AA's best kept secret a lot of the time. (In my opinion). I just try to do what works, no matter what it is.

Karma - looking at cause and effect

(blurb from the Jamyang webpage. See links menu on right hand side)
Karma is a fundamental Buddhist concept, and in this very fragile world, this understanding and practice will be very powerful, individually and collectively. Our individual world as well as the world community is constantly evolving, mainly due to our actions. It is very important for the Buddhist practitioner to know the processes of Karma, and how our actions effect not just the individual but also the worldwide community

The Teacher
Geshe TashiTsering has been the resident teacher at Jamyang since 1994. Born in Tibet, he studied for the Lharampa Geshe degree (the equivalent of a PhD) at Sera-mey Monastic University in South India, gaining the highest marks possible at every level of the sixteen-year course. He teaches in English and is renowned for the warmth, clarity and humour with which he makes complex subjects accessible to Western students.

Geshe Tashi is the creator of the FPMT’s Foundation of Buddhist Thought, a two-year course on the basics of Tibetan Buddhism and author of The Four Noble Truths and Buddhist Psychology. He also teaches widely in the UK, Europe and elsewhere.
