In 2002, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama was visiting the South Island of New Zealand. While in Christchurch, he felt uneasy about the energy of the city. He was told that a church there was built from rock quarried from a location nearby and asked to be taken to the site. He was instantly enamored with the landscape.
Before leaving the location, he declared that Castle Hill was a “Spiritual Center of the Universe”
Those who joined the Dalai Lama there included:
- Paul Voestermans
- Martin de Bock
- Phil Ower
- Eloy Cano
and after the hint:
- steve willis

Can you please supply the lat/long coordinates of the answers to each contest? I believe I have actually camped very close to this site at Cave Stream while in NZ but I can’t find the actual location by searching “Castle Hill” in Google Maps.
When I can find some time, I’ll update the KML file (and make it work again). For this location, 43.2287°S 171.7164°E will get you pretty close.
