Re-introducing myself

Post by KathyLauren » Fri Jun 30, 2017 2:58 pm

Greetings.

I was a long-time member of Dharma Wheel, under a different username. I have been away for a while, during which time I have changed my identity in real life. Now I am back as the new me with a new username to match.

Most of who I am has not changed, including my faith and understanding of the Dharma. Though I have never been among the most active members here, I hope you will find my contributions helpful.

I consider myself a non-denominational Mahayana Buddhist. My practice history is mostly in the Tibetan Karma Kagyu tradition.

An interesting "rebirth," yes?
All the best, and welcome (back)! :smile:
དམ་པའི་དོན་ནི་ཤེས་རབ་ཆེ་བ་དང་།
རྟོག་གེའི་ཡུལ་མིན་བླ་མའི་བྱིན་རླབས་དང་།
སྐལ་ལྡན་ལས་འཕྲོ་ཅན་གྱིས་རྟོགས་པ་སྟེ།
དེ་ནི་ཤེས་རབ་ལ་ནི་ལོ་རྟོག་སེལ།།


"Absolute Truth is not an object of analytical discourse or great discriminating wisdom,
It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified."

Welcome back KL. Looking forward to more thoughtful contributions. :smile:
Just as the trunk of an ordinary tree
Lying in the forests of the Malaya mountains
Absorbs the perfume of sandal from the moist leaves and branches
So you come to resemble who whomever you follow.
