Regardless of his personal life, he was a funny guy with lots of wisdom. I still enjoy listening to his talks from time to time.

Re: Child Lama. I think it is ridiculous.

There sure are. As I mentioned in an earlier post, all of them were written in the 19th century when there was virtually no genuine knowledge of Tibetan Buddhism. The very word "Lamaism" is rooted in that period of almost total ignorance. To sit here on a Buddhist forum in the 21st century and perp...

Re: Child Lama. I think it is ridiculous.

Wow, that was a profound critique. There are much more profound critiques out there regarding Lamaism but thank you. There sure are.

Re: Why do Americans not have to announce which country they are from?

Yes, rather than being one nation or 50 nations, it's more like there are regional differences. They are starting to evaporate with people moving around, but there are still large segments of the population that don't move at all, so you currently find regional variations, rather than by state. htt...
