Goodbye for now.

Postby Individual » Thu Jan 06, 2011 4:18 am

I've decided to take up Tibetan Buddhism.

And for whatever reason, I've decided to abstain from discussing dhamma for a while.

However, I've started a blog:

If you are one of the rare people who can appreciate my eccentricity and don't immediately regard me as a "crazy person," who should be pushed into a prison, hospital, grave, cave, forest, or secluded monastery... if you value what I say and it is useful to you, feel free to read it.

Are "you" going anywhere or has nama and rupa just changed?

You're going to clash with tradition, Indie.

Whatever you decide on, wherever you go, be mindful of impermanence.

All the best!

Good choice. I'd recommend Gelugpa. Shoot for the Geshe degree. That will keep you busy for the next 20 years.

I hope you find in Vajrayana whatever it is you feel the Theravada lacks. All the best! :buddha2:

Good for you Individual. There is a wide world of Dhamma/Dharma out there. May you find a path that leads to trackless freedom.

All the best,

Geoff
