Drama Wheel

I miss the old Therevada vs Vajrayana fights from the old forums. Could we create a third forum "Drama Wheel" where we can all get together and bash each other again? M'kay thanks.

I guess only Maraputras have that much time and ideas on their hands... wonder where this old adage came from: 'An idle mind is the Devil's workshop'...

Who needs Theravada vs. Vajrayana, when you can have "Dorje Thekpa" Vs. Bon?

:jawdrop:

Just kiddin', I think that thread is (largely) productive.

Hence, why there are 2 DW forums.

In the context of Mahayana (incl. Vajrayana), Mahayanists should be able to speak of "hinayana" in a context that is applicable to their own doctrines... hence Dharma Wheel.

In the context of Theravada, Theravadins should be able to speak of the Dhamma in a context that is applicable to their own doctrines, without being told their teachings are provisional, inferior etc... hence Dhamma Wheel.

And in turn, the removal of any need for Theravada v Vajrayana rumbles. If by any chance you really did want to see such rumbles in action, I would recommend visiting Buddhism Without Boundaries... but be careful what you wish for!

Maitri,
Retro. :)
