Re: H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama and his eventual successors

Postby Blue Garuda » Thu Dec 02, 2010 7:55 pm

There are some posts on this thread which appear to be trolling me. I'm not much bothered, but will assure members here that whilst I cannot control the past or the future, at present I have a clear mind on Tibetan issues and the Vajrayana.

Anyone who wishes to may easily find out about my relationship both with the NKT and mainstream Gelugpa. If there is some 'sin' in Buddhism which relates to changing your mind, then I am obviously guilty:

viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2543

As for 'Element' and even 'stuka', I have been privileged to amiably discuss the Pali Canon with both of them in the past on Buddha Forum, a while after Buddhachat died. I respect both their knowledge and commitment.

I only post or moderate on this forum, no others.

I do not celebrate every act of every Tibetan, but I find no problem here in applying the ToS and hopefully being of some use.

I'm happy to answer anyone's anxieties by PM.

Now please may we return to a topic which is of relevance to many members here. :focus:

I assume you're talking about anxieties relating to your status as moderator? 'Cuz, you know, I don't have any about that.....but I've got some others, completely unrelated....

Yeshe seems to be an ok moderator, are his personal views influencing his moderation? If not you should leave his status as a mod out of things,.. that's just how you uphold your integrity.

If moderator's personal views are influencing the moderation, the forum becomes a sort of one sided democracy and manages to get the attention of high lamas for abuses like E-sangha did, it will be destroyed like E-sangha. It's just a website after all, but I don't think this forum is anywhere close to that though,..

The off topic posts have been merged to this tread.

I'm sure members here are now aware that Yeshe is not with NKT, nor is he a practitioner of the gyalpo Shugden. He abides by instructions given to practitioners by H.H. the Dalai Lama, as do I, and Ngawang Drolma.

Mr. Gordo that's good to know,..

I'm not a practitioner of Shugden,.. I'm not NKT,.. I don't have much to do with them, only actually talked to a administrator of a center once on the phone,.. I think she was sending out feelers to abandon it,..

I seem impartial because I have obligations to myself to follow protocols that mitigate my ability to form and act on warped views. I always sound like the devils advocate because of this, but it's worth it.
