Yes, you are right! Institutional Buddhism will never be the same again. The death knell has sounded. All praise the new king! etc... ad nauseum...

I expect the dyke is relieved.

OK :)

Is there any evidence that any DW members who were Buddhists practising Dzogchen before the growth of the DC presence here, are now no longer Buddhists?

I was a long term Buddhist ...nearly thirty years.
I neither reject or accept that term for myself now.

I did not grow jaded. Just grew away. I do not urge anyone else to follow my example.

This discussion on being bouddhist or not when practicing dzogchen is nearly ridiculous ... for any reason some have exagerated the sense of it.

What one can say is that from the pov of our real nature, where you come from is of no importance ... therefore buddhist or non buddhist is of no importance, but this is from the pov of our real nature.

"Absolute Truth is not an object of analytical discourse or great discriminating wisdom,
It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified."
- (Kyabje Bokar Rinpoche, from his summary of "The Ocean of Definitive Meaning")
