"To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget." –Arundhati Roy

Here's an interesting website I've found which has a big database of short biographies of many Tibetan Buddhist masters:

Tibetan Calendar Mathematics by Svante Janson.

The "mathematics" is just simple modular arithmetic. And actually the paper isn't presented using traditional calculations so it's unclear if the Tibetans used modular arithmetic directly or not (it's hinted that they just used rule systems) although they did and do use astronomical data.from observations to track lunar and solar motion and determine if particular points in the sky have been passed, etc.

Although many individuals in this age appear to be merely indulging their worldly desires, one does not have the capacity to judge them, so it is best to train in pure vision.

If you're looking for "supports"--i.e., images of deities, Lamas, Protectors, or if you're trying to identify that Thangka you just saw, this site is amazing...
anyone with an interest in Tibetan iconography is likely already familiar with....

Dzogchen masters I know say: 1)Buddhist religion essence is Dzogchen 2)Religions are positive by intent/fruit 3)Any method's OK unless: breaking Dzogchen vows, mixed as syncretic (Milanese Soup) 4)Don't join mandalas of opponents of Dalai Lama/Padmasambhava: False Deity inventors by encouraging victims 5)Don't debate Ati with others 6)Don't discuss Ati practices online 7) A master told his old disciple: no one's to discuss his teaching with some others on a former forum nor mention him. Publicity's OK, questions are asked from masters/set teachers in person/email/non-public forums~Best wishes

The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy has a lot of new free entries on Buddhism topics by noted scholars. Here is a good representative example:
