The minds of about 30 people were trained on selflessness by a buddhist monk in Dunedin on Saturday.

Geshe Nyima Dorjee, of Christchurch, said his reading at Dhargyey Buddhist Centre on Saturday was designed to ''train the mind'' about devotion to the welfare of others.

''To put others first, before yourself - selflessness - to have compassion, love.''

Geshe Nyima (48) said he spent more than 20 years becoming a geshe at Sera Monastic University, in South India.

He moved from Tibet to live in Dunedin for three years from 2008 and then moved to Christchurch to teach after a request by the city's large Tibetan community.
