I have been a member of e-sangha since 2004. At the beginning there were a lot of beatiful people and things there, but some narrow-minded, intolerant attitudes manifested by certain influential minds there made me take a break from them (not from dharma) for about 3 years.
(Though I personally never had any serious confrontations there nor have I been ever banned)
When I returned there about a half a year ago, sadly I had to see that in the meantime this attitude has become even more prevailing, kind of suffocating (at least for my own personal perception).
So I feel glad to have found this forum that seems to be much more open minded.
My first contact and introduction to Tibetan traditions was by a Sakya master in 1987, but later I took refuge with Yungdrung Bön.
I feel attracted to the attitude and tradition of the Mahasiddhas: several of them initiated both Bön/Buddhist, Hindu/Buddhist and even Jaina lineages.
My main gurus (among many others I deeply respect) are Lopön Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche and Ramana Maharshi of Arunachala.
