Re: in search of a ethical way to deal with spiders

Black widows are my main fear. They probably won't be a problem now that i am in this new apartment and dont have to deal with a wood pile though. I have many black widows where I live.They nest in the underside of the outside chairs.They are very shy and not aggressive .They do not seem to like it...

Re: Admin comings and goings

Hopefully Grig sees this question, but is there something we can change in the policy to make these positions less stressful for the people who take them on? He has one of the most stressful jobs I can think of offline. Maybe he is stressed from modding DW though,if you consider that he has to deal...

Re: DW 10 y.o. video msg from me (DNS)

A good stat for seeing the success of a forum is Active topics. However, that is typically measured over the last 7 days, so doesn't give a long-term picture. I've seen active topics over the last 7 days fluctuate from a low of around 40 to a high of 120+ here at this forum and others. Total member...

Re: Buddhism, and theistic religions.

Hello, I've probably asked this question or one similar to it, but didn't explain myself well... So I'll ask in this forum and explain myself a bit better. I'm a Buddhist and follow the Karma Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism, though I also like to read some translations of the Pali suttas and I lik...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Yeah I did three webcast retreats where he gave a ton of lungs for many things, but I'm not certain whether I got transmission of a practice or just the mantra. One example is Green Tara.Rinpoche would give the lung for the Main mantra's and for the 21 Tara's so you could practice the Green Tara te...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Rinpoche always emphazised quality to be more much more important than quantity, maybe that's why he asked so few time of application (few counts), however, this tells me that it depends more on each one's capacity that in a predeterminated amount of time or repetitions. he said like if one is in p...

Re: Antifa at it again

The only difference between far right Militas and groups like Antifa, are honestly a lack of weapons. I would be very surprised if Antifa members didn't have access to weapons. So why don't they use them? Because they're not the monsters you seem to think they are. When you demonize/attack the peop...
