“I am very privileged to teach here at Nan Tien (Institute). Nan Tien (Institute) is good for me. It has lovely, peaceful surrounds. The whole place is full of loving kindness and compassion. And as I teach, I receive. One of the best ways to learn, as we all know, is to teach. And it is always a pleasure and privilege to teach in a place where the students are so keen to learn; and the students are so keen to receive what is good for them, and what is good for all of us.”
