Drama Wheel

Postby Karma Dondrup Tashi » Wed Jul 20, 2011 2:23 pm

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.

Maaan it sounds like e-sangha was so much fun. :(

Oi Vey. I'm with Spiny, drama is just a few clicks away...

as others are, so am I."
Having thus identified self and others,
harm no one nor have them harmed.

As a refugee from a couple of those Drama sites (I was fortunate to miss out on e-sangha altogether), I want you all to know how grateful I am to find a forum where people are actually nice. Imagine--Buddhists who actually practice the compassion, the right speech, the loving-kindness! It's revolutionary! :hug: I put my toe in the water at DharmaWheel, but a shark bit it off. This forum is a breath of fresh air. :smile:

There is no need to invite Buddhists from other sects to argue, there is a "Dramawheel" here all of the time.

I don't think anyone is consciously aware of having a compulsion for being contentious, but there are a few regulars here like that. There are many more people that haven't made the connection that cultivating detachment also applies to web board conversations.
In reading the scriptures, there are two kinds of mistakes:
One mistake is to cling to the literal text and miss the inner principles.
The second mistake is to recognize the principles but not apply them to your own mind, so that you waste time and just make them into causes of entanglement.

Amusingly there is at least one of those priggish Buddhists who delurked to complain about how contentious the subculture is here, but posts so many gratuitously inflammatory statements you would think it was by intent. And, on a board about a subject for learning how to let go of things, be less upset and be less upsetting to others. Fail.

Dharma wheel itself seems far more contentious, I think its partly because of a few posters I have observed plus it represents a few different sects. It feels less welcoming there and people seem less tolerant, i always expect the greater vehicle to be more accessible.
