To develop bodhichitta, which is the actual practice, you need to develop such compassion that you simply cannot bear others being tormented by suffering. But in order to develop this compassion, you must know exactly how you yourself are plagued by suffering. And you must understand that the whole of samsara is by nature suffering. But first you must fear the lower realms, for without this you will have no repudiation of celestial and human happiness. You must therefore train your mind in the small- and medium- scope parts of the path. -- Pabongka Rinpoche

Abandoning Dharma is, in the final analysis, disparaging the Hinayana because of the Mahayana; favoring the Hinayana on account of the Mahayana; playing off sutra against tantra; playing off the four classes of the tantras against each other; favoring one of the Tibetan schools—the Sakya, Gelug, Kagyu, or Nyingma—and disparaging the rest; and so on. In other words, we abandon Dharma any time we favor our own tenets and disparage the rest.

Although many individuals in this age appear to be merely indulging their worldly desires, one does not have the capacity to judge them, so it is best to train in pure vision.

It means you are junior tree-hugger.

The only reason my score was in the low -7s is that I did not put all strongly agree or disagree; some were only agree, disagree, since they were questions I do not have strong feelings about.

LOL, I must've answered some questions wrong then. I don't feel like one at all.

What's wrong with being a junior and/or giving some tree a loving hug every now and then? ;-)

From where I'm standing on the compass, doing badly in the corporate world is a a positive quality not a negative one! I applaud Pero and his profit inefficiency! :applause:

Almost hit the very middle of the bullseye, although leaning a little towards left-libertarian:

Good grief, who wrote those questions, Hugo Chavez, Fidel, Namdrol? What a "fair & balanced" pinko survey. :zzz:
