Surfing Samsara    

About the Site      


This site was developed as part of coursework for the University of Victoria's Certificate in Computer Based Information Systems. After 30 years in media including print journalism, film and t.v. I decided to go back to school and indulge my inner geek.

For the last 16 years I've been lurching toward enlightenment as a student and practitioner of what the Buddha taught, hopefully not losing a sense of humour on the way. During my travels, I've had the privilege of sitting with Theravadan, Tibetan and Zen sanghas. Each tradition has provided a fresh way of looking at the Dharma and putting it into practice. This has made me a firm believer in the value of information exchange between practitioners of different traditions. The site is dedicated to promoting that exchange. May it benefit all visitors.

Happy surfing and a big Om Mani to you all!
