Hi All

Post by Punya » Thu Dec 20, 2012 11:17 pm

I guess you can say I'm a Tibetan Buddhist rime student.

I'm missing the community forum on the Siddhartha's intent website (which closed at the end of June) and I've found the discussion here interesting. I hope to make a contribution from time to time.

Best wishes to you all

Hi Punya,

It is a shame Siddhartha's intent is down, it was a great resource, but there are many more to be found and listed somewhere around here if you do a search.
Personally I would recommend DharmaSun.org for talks and occasional courses.

Thanks futerko. It looks good!

I have heard there will be a new SI website but no indication about the time frame or content.
