No website for these folk. The name Ven. Sangye Dorje would indicate a Tibetan Buddhist monk, and he is getting ordained in a Chinese Chan/Zen lineage. interesting. Are you going?
This being is bound to samsara, kamma is his means for going beyond.

Hi Tilt,
I would like to go, but its my wife's birthday. So, I think I'll be staying close to home.
As I said to my friend Linda, it was a delightful surprise to learn that there are monastics here and they're getting ordained in Tasmania.
Wynyard is about 2 hours away on the Northwest coast. A pleasant drive through some rural and coastal landscapes.
