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 ...
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...

As others have noted, you could do both. You can both go for the academic degree(s) and do the practice too.

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...
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2018_FIFA_World_Cup Any other World Cup fans here? I'm not a big fan of soccer/football, but I do watch the World Cup since it's only once every 4 years.
