Re: Can someone with schizophrenia practice?

Mental illness is pretty diverse in its manifestations-- schizophrenia included.

But there are a lot of obstacles in addition to mental illness and the medicines to treat them. The only key points are that ...

Re: Tibetan institutional religious violence

Taktsang & Dharmakirti

I have been reading about Taktsang's critique of Gelug Sautrantika, namely that functioning things are not ultimate phenomena.
