Re: New airport at Lumbini

Yes, it's so sad. Western students of Tibetan Buddhism are among the beneficiaries of the extraordinary Tibetan lineages, yet in the cradle there are real challenges in just being able to practice. With the current construction of Uiger-like re-education camps, the future looks even more bleak. I pr...

Two stories related to new airport at Lumbini. One in the context of Chinese in influence in Nepal and the other about the significant potential for environmental destruction as Lumbini further develops. https://thediplomat.com/2019/03/china-is-winning-the-war-for-nepali-buddhism/?fbclid=IwAR2DM9U3m...

Mahayana resources

Dear all

As most of this thread viewtopic.php?f=39&t=17 is quite old and a number the links are dead, it would be good to create a new thread, specifically for Mahayana resources. Any resource suggestions?

Thanks

Hello and welcome Oldfenny. :hi:

The justbegood.net website seems to have a Theravada flavour. Perhaps you have visited our sister website, Dhammawheel. Did you come to Dharmawheel, because you have an interest or want to know more about Mahayana Buddhism?

Re: Buddhist Earthquake Victims on Lombok

Hello Dick.

My local group meets monthly so we can include this community in our prayers. Could we start a crowdfunding page and invite DWers participation? There's a number of us from Australia and Lombok is not far away.

Re: Strategies for Keeping Practice in the West

Make a commitment to your teacher to do a certain amount of practice each day. Then no matter how you unwell you feel, no matter how little time you think you have, no matter how busy at work you think you are, somehow you find the time. Some provisos, of course, but for most of us this is all that'...
