Thank you very much. Found this site just as it's time for bed (way beyond time actually), but looking forward to exploring the forum later today!

Welcome to the zoo, please don't feed the animals, and whatever you do do not tap on the glass!

Hello friend ! :smile:
Abandoning Dharma is, in the final analysis, disparaging the Hinayana because of the Mahayana; favoring the Hinayana on account of the Mahayana; playing off sutra against tantra; playing off the four classes of the tantras against each other; favoring one of the Tibetan schools—the Sakya, Gelug, Kagyu, or Nyingma—and disparaging the rest; and so on. In other words, we abandon Dharma any time we favor our own tenets and disparage the rest.
