Homage to the Buddha,
Homage to the Dharma,
Homage to the Sangha.

Greetings Dharma Wheel,

I am happy to find this online forum. I look forward to mindfully interacting with the other members. I have been studying and practicing Dharma since around 2002, and more specifically Vajrayana since 2005. My main teachers are Jonangpas, though I also, on occasion, visit a local Gelug center as well.

I have great respect for all of the lineages, and for all the schools of Buddhadharma (Theravada, Mahayana/Vajrayana and so forth).

Yup. Sometimes things go kittiwonkus, but at any given time there are several good solid helpful talks going on.

Greetings Dharma Wheel,

I am happy to find this online forum. I look forward to mindfully interacting with the other members. I have been studying and practicing Dharma since around 2002, and more specifically Vajrayana since 2005. My main teachers are Jonangpas, though I also, on occasion, visit a local Gelug center as well.

I have great respect for all of the lineages, and for all the schools of Buddhadharma (Theravada, Mahayana/Vajrayana and so forth).


Glad to know that you study with Jonang Lamas! I love Dolpopa. He was a great Lama, to be sure, who was very familiar with the Mahayana Sutras such as the Lankavatara, Gandavyuha, Angulimaliya, Srimala, and the Mahaparinirvana. Please contribute.

I want to thank Lobster, Songhill, Son of Buddha, Lowlydog and Icylake for the additional warm welcomes. Being new here, it took me a bit to figure out how to track my posts, so I missed these greetings initially. The mods have since helped me sort that out.

:hi:

That's OK, I typically can deal with kittiwonkusness. Par for the course for an online forum. Thanks for the head's up Catmoon. A good reminder for me to be mindful with my own posts. ;)
