Even Namdrol who is very well learned to a certain degree did not have insight into Dzogchen, so he opened that Dzogchen forum to get informed.
For the record, that is not why I opened the Dzogchen forum on E-Sangha.
I opened the Dzogchen forum on E-Sangha because there are practitioners of Dzogchen in Sakya, Kagyu, Gelug, Nyingma and Bon who, at the time seemed to need a place to discuss things separate from the Nyingma forum
The Dzogchen forum was closed because the discussion was becoming completely dominated by people from Dzogchen Community.
The Bon forum was closed primarily because one: the narrative histories of Bon and Buddhism in Tibet are largely incompatible with each other, despite many doctrinal similarities, and two: E-Sangha was a Pan-Buddhist Web site.
The Bon forum was closed at E-Sangha, because the Buddha Shakyamuni would be the only source of blessings regarding Dzogchen according Namdrol' s opinion. Kalden Yungdrung adhered the point of view that Buddha Tonpa Shenrab was here at the Bon forum, the source of blessings, all written at the Bon sub-forum at E-Sangha i guess 3 years ago?
So we Bonpos including Jean Luc Achard, did decide to open / construct another forum named: Yungdrung Rignga Ling and that was the very reason that this new forum was opened after the closing of the E-Sangha Bon forum. http://yungdrung-rignga-ling.forums-free.com/
But for some reason the whole E-Sangha did disappear, or was closed.............
Due to (bad) karma?
