Dharma Wheel -- Mahayana forum

Postby David N. Snyder » Mon Apr 06, 2009 4:10 am

Due to the great success here, :thanks: everyone, we have launched a new forum to be affiliated with this one, which will be for all the Mahayana traditions. Of course, all of us can post on both forums regardless of your tradition.

In keeping with the Dhamma Wheel brand name, we have used the Sanskrit spelling, so the new forum is:

Dharma Wheel

and has the following domain address:

http://www.dharmawheel.net/

Bookmark it, but if you don't bookmark it, don't forget to put the extension .net

Certain things are not yet implemented, such as the avatars being on the left side, the post title of the latest post on the board index, and more smilies, but DharmaWheel is still accessible for registering, posting, and participating.

Bhavatu Sabba Mangalum!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Passed that stage? Of course that is why there is a Mahayana forum. :thinking:

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Greetings,

The creation of this new forum is an offering from the Dhamma Wheel forum to all our friends on the bodhisattva path.

It is our intention that this site will give bodhisattvas (and up-and-coming bodhisattva aspirants!) a friendly environment in which to discuss their path, and to share their experiences and learnings on the road to Buddhahood... regardless of which of the many Buddhist traditions they are aligned to.

:buddha1:

:namaste:

P.S. The forums at Dharma Wheel have now been restructured to bring them into greater alignment with the structure here.

Metta,
Retro. :)

I'm sure many Mahayanists will greatly appreciate the new resource. May Dharma Wheel grow and prosper as quickly as Dhamma Wheel has.

I hope our Mahayana friends find their new forum as appealing as I have found this one,

Well-done.
I am of nature to decay, I have not gone beyond decay.
I am of the nature to be diseased, I have not gone beyond disease.
I am of the nature to die, I have not done beyond death.
All that is mine, dear and delightful, will change and vanish.
I am the owner of my kamma, heir to my kamma, born of my kamma, related to
my kamma, abide supported by my kamma. Whatever kamma I shall do,
whether good or evil, of that I shall be the heir.
Thus we should frequently recollect.
- Upajjhatthana Sutta, Anguttara Nikaya v.57

Greetings everyone,

Ngawang (also known as Ngawang Drolma at E-Sangha, and just Drolma here at Dhamma Wheel, Buddhist Lounge, Buddha Chat, Buddha Forum etc.) has decided to come on board at Dharma Wheel (yes, the Mahayana one) as an administrator.

She is an experienced member of various discussion forums and even had the initiative to set up her own forum, Buddhist Lounge (http://www.buddhistlounge.com/forum.htm) at one point in time whilst Buddha Chat was out of commission.

I greatly admire her level-headed, dedicated and compassionate attitude and know that she'll play a great leading role in helping to establish Dharma Wheel as an excellent discussion forum on Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism.

Please join me in congratulating Ngawang Drolma on her appointment either here or at http://www.dharmawheel.net/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=84

:twothumbsup:

I'd like to welcome Heruka to our team at Dharma Wheel. You might also know him as Sherab Zangpo from Buddha Chat or The Buddhist Lounge. I have great admiration for Heruka, and I'm very pleased that he's going to be involved with this lovely new dharma gem in an ocean of web sites. He is patient, level-headed, compassionate, and kind. And he has a whole lot of knowledge of dharma.

Welcome to Dharma Wheel Heruka, thanks for joining us!

Greetings,

A few updates on things over at Dharma Wheel...

* Heruka has since stepped down as a moderator, and has now been replaced by sraddha
* Ngawang Drolma has stepped down as an administrator due to time commitments, but still provides input as a founding member

Aside from those two "stepping downs", things are actually going really well. If you have an interest in Mahayana and/or Vajrayana Buddhism, do come over and visit!

:D

Hi all,

You know how samsara is, constant flux and constant change.

After a brief sabbatical I've rejoined the staff at Dharma Wheel as an Administrator, at your service.

I'm pleased to be back. Thanks to all who understood my need for a breather and supported the idea!

Best wishes,
Drolma
