New Moderator on Staff

Postby Ngawang Drolma » Wed Nov 10, 2010 10:58 pm

Hi all,

We have a new moderator on board with us. Yeshe Zopa used to be a member of the NKT as some of you know, but he has since left the organization entirely and is studying with a Gelugpa Lharampa Geshe.

He comes to us with both a lot of personal experience in Buddhism as well as a lot of experience moderating. Thanks in advance to Yeshe for volunteering time and energy so that we can discuss the Buddha's Dharma.

Best wishes,
Laura

Congrats to Yeshe, and to Dharma Wheel.
དམ་པའི་དོན་ནི་ཤེས་རབ་ཆེ་བ་དང་།
རྟོག་གེའི་ཡུལ་མིན་བླ་མའི་བྱིན་རླབས་དང་།
སྐལ་ལྡན་ལས་འཕྲོ་ཅན་གྱིས་རྟོགས་པ་སྟེ།
དེ་ནི་ཤེས་རབ་ལ་ནི་ལོ་རྟོག་སེལ།།


"Absolute Truth is not an object of analytical discourse or great discriminating wisdom,
It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified."

May any merit generated by on-line discussion
Be dedicated to the Ultimate Benefit of All Sentient Beings.

Hello Yeshe ....

That is true but he still have a very negative attitude towards the Dalai Lama that have been obvious in a number of posts in an other forum.

We are all here to help each other go through this, whatever it is.
~Kurt Vonnegut

"To reject practice by saying, 'it is conceptual!' is the path of fools. A tendency of the inexperienced and something to be avoided."
- Longchenpa

"Even though you have recognized your essence, if you do not get accustomed to it,
You will be carried away by the enemy of thoughts, like a small child in a battle field.
So long as you are not free from the limitations of accepting and rejecting,
That long will you not recognize the view of the innermost secret heart-essence."

-Longchenpa

I don't participate in other forums so I don't know what Yeshe has posted in other forums. This will be addressed internally for further clarification. These forums abide by theTOS that has been set up for everyone.
