greetings from San Francisco

Postby garygach » Sun Jul 12, 2009 4:57 am

I salute the noble web hosts and guests

My root lineage is in the tradition of Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh.

I am currently studying with Dairyu Michael Wenger, of San Francisco Zen Center.

The mindfulness sangha I host is at America's first interracial, interfaith congregation, the Church for the Fellowship of All Peoples (established by Rev Howard Thurman)

I am slowly posting some of my books and articles online at my home page

“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence.

That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”

Hi Gary,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

Thanks for joining.

For anyone who may not recognize the name at first glance, Gary is the famous author of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Buddhism [third edition] (Alpha Books, New York). And of course many other books and poetry books, but the Idiot's guide might be the most known.

Hello Gary,

I am also in San Francisco. I practice with the FWBO at the San Francisco Buddhist Center. When I abruptly declared myself to be a Buddhist my wife purchased the Idiots Guide to Buddhism an found it helpful. I occasionally attend the San Francisco Zen Center events. Sometimes I go to a few of the Thai and Cambodian Wats in our area as well.
