About Lin Ong
Hello! I was curious about how we think, what makes us do what we do, and how can we help ourselves and others. Previously worked as psychologist and a wildlife guide, I also love nature. I feel blessed to receive teachings mainly from precious Teachers of the Dhargyey Buddhist Centre, Phen Day Dhargyey Ling, Trashi Ganden Choepel Ling and associated Centres, and travelling to India to receive teachings from H.H. Dalai Lama with our Teachers. In the last ten years, my work involves being a mindfulness trainer bringing together and applying the evidence in science and contemplative traditions, witnessing the potential of the mind in influencing our lives. Being a Dharma student, I have benefited so much and am looking forward to continual practice and learning. The depth of the Dharma is like the vast ocean that is able to support all that occurs on its surface. Qualities such as kindness, compassion, wisdom understanding the nature of things and our existence; are the true skills that we require to navigate life! I am eternally grateful to the teachings and our Teachers.
