The Offering Bowl

No holds barred discussion on the Buddhadharma. Argue about rebirth, karma, commentarial interpretations etc. Be nice to each other.

I think "Offering Bowl" was set up Shambala-ites.

The titles freaked me out. When I first opened the practitioners section I was like: "What???" :shock:

Enlightened Society Assembly.
Scorpion Seal Assembly.
Warriors assembly.
Three Pillar Leadership.

I thought I'd stumbled mistakenly into some sort of Masonic Lodge website...

I have heard it compared (this in private conversation) to the internal language that developed over time in Scientology: this rundown, that rundown, audit this, process that &c on a very structured "bridge to total freedom."

I don't think it's at all fair to compare Shambhala-ism to Xenu-ism doctrinally or organizationally, but at the linguistic level, there may be some merit to this comparison. It's an insider's game.
