Apologies to New Zealand!Posted by Candradasa on Tue, 9 April, 2013 - 15:28
Mea Culpa time! I’m sure you all noticed the initial error on yesterday’s post from Ratnavyuha about Nityadana’s ordination, which I made on his behalf (he sent his report via email). Still associating my good friend with Sydney in my head, I wrote AUSTRALIA in the title, instead of New Zealand! Although I realised immediately and corrected it, our system had already sent out erroneously titled notification emails… As a Scot abroad who has much experience of being asked which part of England Scotland is in, I’d like to reassure all our New Zealand friends that this was a one-off, unmindful slip-up rather than a broad-based vagueness about a sensitive cultural difference. Sorry!
