Profile Picture: "The Foaming Monk"
The Chinese characters are Fo (buddha) and Ming (bright). The image is of a student of Buddhism, who, imagining himself to be a monk, and not understanding the true meaning of the words takes the sound of the words literally. Likewise, People on web forums sometime seem to be foaming at the mouth.

I've watched the webcasts so far. Great opportunity to attend the monlam for people not able to go there.
But I wondered where Situ Rinpoche is. I've seen only Gyaltsab Rinpoche attending the prayers.
Does anybody know??

今以佛眼觀之佛與眾生同住解脫之床。無此無彼無二平等。
Now, observing with the eye of the Buddha, both the Buddha and ordinary beings are in the same liberated state. There is neither this nor that: there is only non-duality and identity.

I believe it has something to do with the Indian government's restrictions on his movements. One or two Mönlams ago there was a long-life (empowerment?) ceremony for both Gyaltsab & Tai Situ Rinpoches. His Eminence Gyaltsabpa was there in person, wearing the orange hat and everything, whereas Tai Situpa was only able to attend electronically...
"The Sutras, Tantras, and Philosophical Scriptures are great in number. However life is short, and intelligence is limited, so it's hard to cover them completely. You may know a lot, but if you don't put it into practice, it's like dying of thirst on the shore of a great lake. Likewise, it happens that a common corpse is found in the bed of a great scholar." ~ Karma Chagme
