Welcome

Welcome to this website. It is a tributary of the big river of dharma linked with the simplybeing.co.uk website of the teachings of James Low and C.R.Lama.

You are invited to jump into the water, and as you splash, know that the droplets’ sun-glint rainbows are aspects of yourself.

There are infinite aspects to the dharma and if this does not speak to your current condition may you quickly find a stream to suit you… and if this stream and river should help you find your own way then any merit arising is dedicated to the welfare of all sentient beings.

Whichever way you go… the very best of luck!

Based near Exeter, and teaching buddhism and dzogchen, Wendy is a disciple of James Low and a teacher in the lineage of James Low and C. R. Lama.

This website contains some information and also bits and pieces… looking at the world through different dharma lenses including dzogchen.

If you would like to develop a greater understanding of the dzogchen view then one way to go would be to work your way through the Macclesfield talks on the audio section of the simplybeing.co.uk website, slowly allowing it to permeate through and through as the view is expounded.

Here is a list of links  to the audios and videos currently available in this set of teachings.

When I was a child my main experience of trouble with health was mouth–ulcers ( lucky me). In my late teens I added migraines (treated…

Cutting through the karmic knots… (2)

So it seems that, as human beings, our sense of self is formed through identifying with a mass of little ‘thought knots’, of energetic kinks twists and shapings. One little thought, ‘i’, links out to many other thoughts about ‘me’.  By giving these thoughts our attention as being particular to – and definitional of – ourselvelves they…

Untying karmic knots… dharma, love (1)

Following on from the previous post…. Understanding both the meaning and purpose of ‘ being tender towards your ‘self’ was a bit of struggle for me.  Though our particular knots will surely be tied in different ways, perhaps sharing some thoughts on that struggle might be helpful. in James’s commentary to the  treasure text of…

Gift-horses…coming and going

Well if this ‘blog’ were about cats, with cute pictures of them crawling over the PC or dancing on the table then millions of people would enjoy… As I’m able to see how many people look at this site (whether or not they enjoy it or find it helpful is a mystery) …i know it is not like Cats……
