Re: Religious Violence in Thailand

Yikes, these attackers have accumulated very bad karma to hell for murdering monks, members of the sangha and innocent folks. "Violence is likely a response to a recent assassination of a purported BRN leader. Doloh Sarai". These Muslim jihadist are just way too obsessed with hatred and murder, bli...

Re: Kamala Devi Harris

No. Another DNC establishment sock puppet who develops policy based on focus group feed back. Gillibrand is another one. Just no. And no to Cory Booker with his feels. I don't trust a Wall Street banker over doing all the talk about love. I just can't see how devotion to love at your core leads you...

Re: Signing Off

Malcolm is gone from DW but he left a treasure of information through many years of posting.If someone is interested
in Tibetan Buddhism they are in luck to have this treasury archived.
He can be reached on facebook so he is not really gone.

Re: Vanished threads list

Occasionally one comes here to look up a discussion only to find that it has vanished in the night like a political dissident. Usually the reasons are easy to guess (such as the recent Shiva thread in the Tibetan forum), but sometimes they’re really not obvious at all, perhaps because the prohibite...

We're looking to back-fill 2, preferably 3 moderator positions.
Would appreciate any serious suggestions or volunteers.
It would be nice to have at least one candidate with a background in Vajrayana.
Malcolm fits this position.

These statements cannot be warped to fit the Buddhist view: (i) man becomes liberated by the knowledge that he himself is Brahman (115...

The name Erick is not his real name, nor is Tsiknopolous. I have no idea why he picked this Greek-sounding name, but I know it's not his real one.
I agree and I would have chosen Mista Bob Dobalina.
