Re: Nun's ordination

I just got my copy of the current issue of Tricycle and in it there is an article that the Tibetan Buddhist tradition has revived the nuns ordination: https://tricycle.org/magazine/recently-bodhi-tree/ I thought there already were some fully ordained Tibetan Buddhist nuns? Or perhaps this is a more ...

Re: Zen Forum International status

We have our Zen sections here, which I see are picking up a little. I might be able to host another site, if time permits, to allow a Zen-only forum, if necessary. Are there some advantages of posting in a Zen only forum, rather than something more pan-Dharma like this site? Is it that those from ot...

Re: Introduction (and in need of some advice)

As others have noted, you could do both. You can both go for the academic degree(s) and do the practice too. The academic part will give you a better understanding of the doctrines, concepts, history, etc which can definitely be an aid to practice. As far as career opportunities, I think those will ...

Re: Socialism & Communism

I think a return to the Ricardian ideas of separating rentier income from the actual economy would be a wonderful tonic for our current ills. Assholes making money while they sleep from mountains of inherited capital is not production. They are parasites on the real economy and should be taxed out ...

Do you have a backup of the site? If not, check with your web hoster; it is possible they have one.

I see you're in Santa Rosa; glad to see you made it safely through the recent fires.

No need to reinvent the wheel (pun intended); the East Asian forum here has over 30,000 posts so far and includes all major forms of Zen. And we're all up to date with the SSL security certificates (see lock symbol in your browser). Just start posting away; don't make me get out the keisaku. :jedi: ...

I found out from pilgrim over at DWT. https://www.lionsroar.com/aaron-lee-the-angry-asian-buddhist-has-died-age-34/ I read some of his articles, they were pretty good. Although I didn't agree with all of his arguments, I liked the way he brought it out into the open how Asians do meditate and partic...
