I post here but do not necessarily consider myself a Buddhist. There is so much out there that claims Buddhism which, coupled with the western tendency to co-opt anything they involve in, it has me not knowing that thing. Some schools(and internet schools) have evolved recently with not a shred of lineage. I don't think it matters at all to me as my spiritual tendency seems intact, but you hear all sorts of strange things at times. This board is better than most as lineage holders do frequent this site, but some boards are wholely corrupted to my take.
Just so you know if you hear me saying something it may not be a Buddhist saying something. And as they say....test each thing heard as if it was a test to ascertain if it were gold or not. It may or may not be.
"This order considers that progress can be achieved more rapidly during a single month of self-transformation through terrifying conditions in rough terrain and in "the abode of harmful forces" than through meditating for a period of three years in towns and monasteries"....Takpo Tashi Namgyal.
