First contact with the Dharma.

My first real contact with the Dharma actually begings during my University years. The very first dharma talk that I ever listen to was by Ajahn Brahm on ‘How do Buddhist deal with sickness and death’. It was from there onwards I regarded myself as Buddhist. I started to look for dharma talk CDs and would listen to them over and over again. The special things about these CDs is that everytime I listen to them they would bring a different meaning. Until last year when The Chief Reverend was about to pass away I receive a SMS asking all Buddhist to send Metta to the Chief Reverend. That moment when I was sending Metta seems like there is a very special energy that comes into the present moment I could actually feel that someone or something is there with me. From that point onwards it has cemented my faith as a Buddhist.
