Homage to the Buddha,
Homage to the Dharma,
Homage to the Sangha.

Greetings Dharma Wheel,

I am happy to find this online forum. I look forward to mindfully interacting with the other members. I have been studying and practicing Dharma since around 2002, and more specifically Vajrayana since 2005. My main teachers are Jonangpas, though I also, on occasion, visit a local Gelug center as well.

I have great respect for all of the lineages, and for all the schools of Buddhadharma (Theravada, Mahayana/Vajrayana and so forth).
May all sentient beings have happiness and its causes,
May all sentient beings be free of suffering and its causes,
May all sentient beings never be separated from bliss without suffering,
May all sentient beings be in equanimity, free of ignorance, attachment and aversion.

Yup. Sometimes things go kittiwonkus, but at any given time there are several good solid helpful talks going on.

Glad to know that you study with Jonang Lamas! I love Dolpopa. He was a great Lama, to be sure, who was very familiar with the Mahayana Sutras such as the Lankavatara, Gandavyuha, Angulimaliya, Srimala, and the Mahaparinirvana. Please contribute.

I want to thank Lobster, Songhill, Son of Buddha, Lowlydog and Icylake for the additional warm welcomes. Being new here, it took me a bit to figure out how to track my posts, so I missed these greetings initially. The mods have since helped me sort that out.

That's OK, I typically can deal with kittiwonkusness. Par for the course for an online forum. Thanks for the head's up Catmoon. A good reminder for me to be mindful with my own posts. ;)
