“Trump’s grand and vulgar self-absorption is inviting all of us to examine our own selfishness. His ignorance calls us to attend to our own blind spots. The fears that he stokes and the isolation he promotes goad us to be braver, more generous.” - James S. Gordon.

Why don't you ask him ?

http://greatmiddleway.wordpress.com/about/


The New Jonang Community is a western branch of Great Middle Way Buddhism. It arose, as with all Buddhist communities, from the teachings, example, and blessings of Buddha Shakyamuni. These were then transmitted through a lineage of realized Buddhist Masters, including the Indian Masters Nagarjuna, Asanga, and Vasubandhu, and the Tibetan Masters Kunchen Dolpopa and Jetsun Taranatha.

We use the term New Jonang to give the revitalized teachings of the Great Middle Way a distinct identity within the wider Buddhist world. By using this term, we make clear that practitioners of this community are following the teachings and example of Kunchen Dolpopa and Jetsun Taranatha. The word New is used not to imply that it is newly created, but rather that it is a presentation of the Dharma in a form that is appropriate to the needs and conditions of the modern world. By using the term Jonang, we encourage all to follow the perfect example of simplicity and purity of practice shown by the Jonang Khenpos.

May the sun that illumines the Mountain Dharma of Kunchen Dolpopa’s Great Middle Way, having risen in Tibet, now shine over the West.

By the merit accrued through the pure thoughts, words, and deeds of the Jonangpas, may the teachings, example, and blessings of Buddha Shakyamuni and the Buddha from Dolpo remain and flourish for the greater good and happiness of all beings.

Abandoning Dharma is, in the final analysis, disparaging the Hinayana because of the Mahayana; favoring the Hinayana on account of the Mahayana; playing off sutra against tantra; playing off the four classes of the tantras against each other; favoring one of the Tibetan schools—the Sakya, Gelug, Kagyu, or Nyingma—and disparaging the rest; and so on. In other words, we abandon Dharma any time we favor our own tenets and disparage the rest.

Ven. Tashi Nyima was very helpful to me when I was beginning my study of dharma.

I can't remember all of the details surrounding the New Jonang (and I might be wrong), but it has something to do with
the recognition or rejection of the line of Tulkus and bridging the gap in the lineage. As was posted earlier, ask him and
find out for yourself.

I just want to note here (for those following this thread) that once I realized Ven. Tashi most likely no longer frequents this forum (I haven't seen any recent posts by him) I decided to contact him directly. I did not want to make a post calling comments into question (however respectfully), without offering a chance for a response. We had a very pleasant exchange and all questions I had about the matter have been cleared up to my satisfaction. I am grateful for the kindness he showed to me in our dialog.
