I don't think so, it's a legitimate ad hom, if I am not mistaken.

If the light bulb goes out, I can do dark retreat. Any circumstance is a practice. Farting lout practice is really high level, if you combine it with guru yoga, Song of Vajra. Wonderful. Easy. Dzogchen is really great. There's no meditative routine, but visions arise. The signs and nyams appear by themselves. Amazing. No discipline, no work. Wonderful. If anyone asks, you tell them, I'm practicing dharma, mastering dharma. They will have to leave you alone and will want to help you. Fantastic. Guru, Deva, Dakini, really the only help I need.

And here's one for my vajra brothers and sisters in the Karma Kagyu Corporation:

How many Karma Kagyus does it take to change a light bulb? We'll have to get back to you on that one coz we're still in the courts trying to decide who has the right to decide who will be the one making the decisions! :tongue:

You are correct, the literal latin is "to the person", which can be adverse, perverse or just doggerel mush.

So may the glorious radiance from the Arya Sangha & Buddhas soon be outshone by the auras of all we spinning Dharma Chakra-ites! :bow:

You have students? That's Greek Buddhism I guess.

No, Greek Buddhism is a smoke screen for tax evasion, hence the Euro coin in his ear lobe, but since you're a penniless blue bum scum :broke: , you needn't apply as a student.

Now that's the Frank Zappa I've come to love and respect! No wonder I didn't recognise him, he wasn't in the photo!!!
