Re: deadliest mass shooting in the U.S.

True..I have about as much knowledge of Australian culture as you do about American... Sorry to inform you that you are 100% wrong. Tell me what you know about the great Australian hero Ned Kelly. What about the Eureka stockade? See out here in the rest of the world we get Amerikan culture and hist...

Re: deadliest mass shooting in the U.S.

I am sure that a lot of people here are going to strongly disagree with this but what worked in Australia will not work here in the US...period. American culture is too deeply entrenched with heroes, guns and violence going all the way back to the founding of this country. You obviously have no ide...

I know the obvious answer here is going to be "Tara", but I was wondering what particular DC practices might be good for obsessive thinking and worry.

Re: Four Dharma Seals

Taken from the Aro Authenticity Debate https://dharmawheel.net/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=27652&p=431249&hilit=four+seals#p431249 Karma Dorje said it already and so did I: If it conforms to the Four Dharma Seals then it is Dharma.

Re: The Aro Authenticity Debate.

Who ever said I supported it's validity. I am just tired of seeing people beating them up over and over again for no better reason other than to exercise their own prejudices and to confirm their own egos. Well, I hope you apply this attitude to other groups and traditions too and don't restrict it...

Ok, so how does it work then if a master say puts his handprint in solid stone or does something else that appears to be impossible by what we know of the laws of physics?

Re: How do I go deeper into Zen practice?

Hello. I've been practicing Zazen for about 3-4 years now. I try to sit for 30 minutes twice a day (but a lot of times it's more like once). I go to a local (Soto) Zen center on and off, but I've mostly just been practicing on my own from what I read in books. I would like to go deeper into Buddhis...

I have been reading all of these various posts and how they are linking back to DKR and ultimately to Sogyal Rinpoche and the reason I haven't posted anything on them is simply because I have never met either one of them or their accusers...so I just figure its not my place, and that being the case ...
