Cool articles on Tibet etc

Postby Fa Dao » Tue Jan 10, 2017 1:40 pm

this is a fun site to peruse through when tired of reading MSM propaganda...I did the search on Tibet but you can check out anything there having to do with ancient civilizations, archeology etc

Enjoy!

That site appears to be a vehicle to sell tchotchkes to fact- and science-averse persons. http://www.ka-gold-jewelry.com/?v16=true

there is so much conspiratorial nonsense on the interwebz, and it's not hard to see why. if you want to sell someone something useless, you might as well target the suckers and the rubes who get drawn in to such capers

like craigslist...? :spy: What does "MSM" mean in this context?
"My pure land is not destroyed,
yet the multitude sees it as consumed in fire,
with anxiety, fear, and other sufferings
filling it everywhere."
(Saddharmapuṇḍarīkasūtra XVI)

All these dharmāḥ are the status of dharma, the standing of dharma, the suchness of dharma; the dharma neither departs from things-as-they-are, nor differs from things-as-they-are; it is the truth, reality, without distortion.(SA 296, 因緣法)

MSM=main stream media...the meaning is that there has been so much anti-trump and anti-hillary news etc that this site is a nice fun break from all of that...
