Loden Jinpa is a Buddhist monk practising in the Tibetan Gelug tradition. He lives and studies at the Tibetan Buddhist Society down in Melbourne. He's also remarkably patient (and practical) with his advice and considered opinions to the ignorant and hopeful - such as your humble author.
He's started up a forum at buddhistforums.net. For those of you who wanted to chat about Buddhism, or had questions - and I know there's at least one of you - it's well worth popping over and having a chat!
And yes, today's photo is coming - it was an unbelievably long day at work. Never, ever believe anyone who comes to you with an urgent project who claims "It's just a simple [x]". Cripples fall down now!
