I have to sheepishly confess: just last week I was searching online for the Upāyakauśalya sutra. Couldn't find it. Then I found a hardcopy in the library I'm working in.....

Who owns the Dharma?
That's a very manipulative complex question.

But here is my answer to it.

Buddha Shakyamuni owns the Dharma
You are permitted to transmit the Dharma in context without alteration.
Altering content, presenting out of context, misquoting, charging, and misrepresenting is strictly prohibited by the terms of use.

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.
