actually you were quite right in addressing how Tibetans approach new members.TharpaChodron wrote: ↑Wed Nov 15, 2017 7:28 amI realized as soon as posting my comment that I was probably walking into a landmine because I was saying an opinion that doesn't have much to back it up with.

This is news to me. Can you direct me to your sources?Also that Nichiren is the only Buddhism to be banned anywhere
There is an underlying misunderstanding here. Posts earlier in this thread might address these misunderstandings.Forcibly teaching Buddhadharma seems unhealthy to me. One of the great things about Buddhism is that it doesn't impose itself on people.
I'll stay out of it though. (Backs out slowly and closes the door.)
I left Nichiren Daishonin's teachings...and was very close to a Rinpoche..he explained often enough he had more than enough students..and that Buddhism is not spread but people come to it due to merit.
But that's then and this is now...we don't live in that time anymore...
i don't do what i just did here with anyone ...i've been here over a year and this was my first time i went that heavy...with other Buddhists..
It needed to to be said...
You do realize Malcolm does the same all the time...maybe with a lot more finesse than me , but he does this all the time.
