Hello. My name is MaryEllen Kirkpatrick and I live in San Francisco, California. I’m SPC at Ocean of Compassion in Campbell, CA and I volunteer at Vajrapani Institute as well. I’m so grateful to have this opportunity for study with you all under Geshe Namdak. One of many wonderful things about having taken up this study is that I often see people I know from Jamyang in both the Ocean of Compassion and Vajrapani Virtual Gompas.
