Dhamma Wheel has a sister forum called Dharma Wheel. ITS subheading says " A discussion forum on the Dhamma of the Vajyana and Mahayana "
Good for them. More power to their elbows I say.
Eventho I expected this reaction I am a bit at a loss of words.
I am talking about this thread of yours which is offtopic in regard to the rules of this sub-forum.
Honestly man, as someone also interested in Psychology I cannot but wonder what hurt you so much that you cannot let your past as an "ignorant Mahayani" go. Whatever it was it is clouding your perception. Please do something about it. Get well soon

What do you think "A Buddhist discussion forum on the Dhamma of the Theravada " means ?
And your response to this is Akuma ?
And the " get well soon" ?
PeterB wrote:So you think that the mods are at fault for not spotting that Akuma...?
Perhaps you would care to point to the subforum rule it breaches ?
Better still, answer the question ?
PeterB wrote:The forum sub banner reads
"A Buddhist discussion forum on the Dhamma of the Theravada..."
Is any of this ambiguous and difficult to understand ?

Respectfully would be my suggestion.

It's ok I guess to look at and compare with other traditions or even other philosophies - but within a limited scope - as in "golly, that's sort of similar to what Epicticus said - that's interesting, isn't it?" Not in a "my trad is better than your trad" kinda way.

By my reckoning that is now four people who have actually answered a very simple question in a thread that has now run to four pages.
