Just hit a hitch. I need to download and print the registration form then fax it to them, persumably so they have my signature. But I don't have a fax machine. erm... I'll try it at work.

Re: ChNNR Dorje Drolo retreat

I know. I attended some teachings in London a couple of years ago, and have watched quite a few open webcasts, and met up with local members for the transmission. but joining just for one closed webcast when i really want teachings on another terma may not be the best reason to join.

Re: ChNNR Dorje Drolo retreat

Thanks, I'll give it a go. I'm thinking I've just left it too late. I was undecided whether to join and the DC membership system seems to have decided for me, which may not be a bad thing.

Re: 1000 to 1500 Chinese spies might be at Bodhgaya Kalacakra

As I understand it, the PRC government sees HH Dalai Lama as a purely political figure, and a splittist, at that. Therefore, they would be interested in any "Chinese citizen", Tibetan or Han, visiting this "wolf in monk's robes." As for the point that many Chinese practice Tibetan Buddhism, here is ...
