Hi, I'm Bill Turner, uppity gay, ambivalent on tradition, took refuge and Bodhisattva Vow in Shambhala, don't like the Shambhala bureaucracy or the busyness of Tibetan culture (even as I emphatically support the Tibetan people in their exile/diaspora, and couldn't be more pleased that a humble Tibetan monk is the world's leading Buddhist rock star). :anjali:

Hi Bill,

Welcome to Dharma Wheel,


Maybe you collect a lot of important writings,
Major texts, personal instructions, private notes, whatever.
If you haven’t practiced, books won’t help you when you die.
Look at the mind – that’s my sincere advice.
