Hello

Postby M.G. » Wed Jun 26, 2013 2:21 am

Should have posted this a few days ago.

My name's M.G.; I've been a sometime lurker on this board for years, and posted once or twice, back when this was e-sangha. I am consistently impressed by the knowedge displayed by many of the long-time posters on this board.

I was raised by secular parents in the exotic suburbs of Northern New Jersey, and for whatever reason was drawn to the imagery of Buddhism even when I was quite young.

I've done formal practice with Zen and Thai teachers, but my main Buddhist practices were taught to me by the great Chogyal Namkhai Norbu.

Welcome to Dharma Wheel M.G.

I am looking forward to your next "suprise" topic title.

Since this is my formal introduction, I should also mention that I am at present a post-Buddhist.

A bodhisattva does not become weary of evil beings nor does he commit the error of bringing forth thoughts inclined to reject them and cast them aside. Avatamsaka Sutra, ch. 25

Hello flavio81.

In terms of your analysis, I'd say that I identify as a post-Dzogchenpo.
