    About Me
    Many times to India: First came for spiritual search, then did ethno-medical research for many years, until my opening up to India's greatest son, the Buddha, took me more to S.E. Asian countries where his teaching is more authentically available. (An ethno-medical project still underway in India, though, and travelling for that, plus for Buddhist circuit tours, frequently.)
    Satipatthana practise, Buddhist text translation.
