From my novice point of view, this board is a good place to learn about the three jewels, especially Sangha since I am home bound. The Dharma Wheel part of the greater Sangha is diverse; thus, the greater Sangha must be even more diverse. I have not studied the Dharma enough to know much, but the fact that there are a number of different schools of Buddhism seems to mean the Dharma is diverse, too. In addition, the Right Way means each individual has a path from novice to enlightenment; thus, each person may have a different understanding of the three jewels--more diversity.
Members of this board have given good advice and good links to Buddhist literature. This board may not be as it was, nor as anyone wants it to be, but it is a vehicle for experienced Buddhist to help the less experienced.
In every age, elders complain of youth being unruly and unwise. But, children grow to be elders, and some learn to be wise.
HHDL: "My confidence in venturing into science lies in my basic belief that as in science so in Buddhism, understanding the nature of reality is pursued by means of critical investigation: if scientific analysis were conclusively to demonstrate certain claims in Buddhism to be false, then we must accept the findings of science and abandon those claims."
