It seems this forum is dead place.Wish there was more active place for laity to discuss dhamma genuinely .That would help many a beings..but its very difficult to find such a place and kindred spirits on internet .It cannot be helped it seems.
Historic Buddha is dead.Dhamma is a very delicate thing ,difficult to grasp even with a able teacher.And Sangha is scattered. what is the future of Buddhism ,If any !.Its much darkness in terms of Guidance. Graveled in fancy new age jargon which brings more confusion than it solves any.Hope Bodhisattas show mercy on mankind.
Anyway, Goodbye and Metta. Hope all beings achieve what they seek.
"The friend has passed away,
The Master, too, has gone.
There is no friendship now that equals this:
The mindfulness directed bodywards.
The old ones now have passed away,
The new ones do no please me much,
Today alone I meditate
Like a bird gone to its nest."
