The Chinese characters are Fo (buddha) and Ming (bright). The image is of a student of Buddhism, who, imagining himself to be a monk, and not understanding the true meaning of the words takes the sound of the words literally. Likewise, People on web forums sometime seem to be foaming at the mouth.

I've watched the webcasts so far. Great opportunity to attend the monlam for people not able to go there.
But I wondered where Situ Rinpoche is. I've seen only Gyaltsab Rinpoche attending the prayers.
Does anybody know??

I believe it has something to do with the Indian government's restrictions on his movements. One or two Mönlams ago there was a long-life (empowerment?) ceremony for both Gyaltsab & Tai Situ Rinpoches. His Eminence Gyaltsabpa was there in person, wearing the orange hat and everything, whereas Tai Situpa was only able to attend electronically...
