hello

Postby PadmaVonSamba » Sat May 14, 2011 1:53 am

Hello.
I am happy to find a maha.vajrayana forum.
Profile Picture: "The Foaming Monk"
The Chinese characters are Fo (buddha) and Ming (bright). The image is of a student of Buddhism, who, imagining himself to be a monk, and not understanding the true meaning of the words takes the sound of the words literally. Likewise, People on web forums sometime seem to be foaming at the mouth.

Fantastic handle. One of the best I've seen in a Buddhist forum, actually. The only other one in the same class was someone calling herself "Karmina Purana."
DGA's PhD dissertation, a history of "mindfulness," is available here:
