Maybe because he does not like "power people" and/or "control freaks"?
I keep wondering why you don't bring this up at the vajracakra forum. There are actually people there who have served on a Gaykil or run DC centers. I would love to see their responses.
PS. How do you know that they do not exist here people who have served on a Gakyil or run DC centers?
Dear all and ALL,
I have never had even one thought that anyone at VC is a power person or control freak. Perhaps these terms are entirely from Dronma. Perhaps she is voicing her own projections that have completely nothing to do with me. I have no problem posting on VC, as I feel appropriate, as my many posts attest.
Truth is I like the cheery color scheme here on DW better. That is all.
Now that that is out of the way, let's talk about power people and control freaks in the DC -
just kidding. There are also no power people or control freaks in the DC. It just appears that way sometimes.
Everything / everyone has no permanent self nature. In 100 years, I am sure that nothing anyone writes, here, or on VC, will be recorded anywhere, or remembered by anybody, and I am content with that.
The Beatles will go on forever. That said ---
Here is the Master Calander of the DCA, Tsegyalgar East:
Of the 34 scheduled events, 18 are either Vajra Dance or Yantra Yoga. Only 4 other teaching events are scheduled from the list of secondary practices: one event of Chod, one event of Longsal Saltong Tsalung Practice, and two SMS base events. Please note that this covers a period of eight months and includes Tseygyalgar, Conway MA, and Kundrolling, NYC. Sure Rinpoche is visiting for three weeks, but this is not eight months.
What is wrong with this picture?
This is like serving up cabbage greens and boiled turnips, most of the time, when the garden has 100 different flavorful veggies in it. Personally, I don't eat cabbage greens and boiled turnips. I have always been afraid that "you are what you eat", and that I might wind up as a narcissistic power cabbage or nit-picking control turnip.
True story. (No particular cabbage or turnip in mind, just a general discomfort at the feeling tone of how things were presented.)
Maybe this is only my problem.
Maybe it is time that the DC grows beyond this, serving up some other veggies from the cornucopia menu of 100. Maybe I can learn to stomach cabbage greens and boiled turnips if they are prepared in a tasty new recipe by new chefs. Hmmnnnn - maybe if we add a pinch of awareness curry? Now that's much better.
