more from your posts on the subleties of the Abhidhamma than from
nearly anyone else. I think if you leave you will be depriving many
of your insights. So I sincerely request you to remain here for the
benefit of all of us.
I also do not take our little tiffs personally, and am a lot less
bothered about it that our list moderators. My suspicious is that you
have fundamental disagreements with the Tibetan Dharma, and this is a
cause of difficulty communicating. This is only a GUESS mind you. I
could well be wrong, and I only mention it because it is a prevalent
view I've encountered among Theravadins, that the Mahayana/Tibetan
Dharma is a corruption somehow.
- My Dear Amara
My life is so short and I have so much to learn. Your posts have been
an encyclopedia of learning for me. Your answers to my questions have
always been thoughtful, detailed and clear. agreement or disagreement
is not an issue for me, but learning I am interested in. I am not a
fool to think that I don't need more learning and practice.
I am sure it is the Buddha who has said that a fool is one who, when
admonished or instructed, does not reflect on this information and
learn from it. I hope I am not that fool and I have read all your
detailed informative posts as if they were meant for my instruction.
I would be happy to be able to continue to reflect on issues atht are
discussed here with your assistance.
Our friends the moderators are only doing there job as good
moderators should. we cannot hope that they should treat us any
differently than someone else. When there has been untoward
interaction using the List all parties need reminded of the
instruction of moderation. I would expect that you are not the only
one to have received the infamous 'yellow card' on this occasion.
As you can see there are many on this list who would hope that you do
not quit the discussions. But that is a decision you must make. I
truly hope that you make the right decision and one that you are
satisfied with. (as much as anyone can be.)
I felt I had to add my 'bit' to the call for your backflip. And I
would think that there will be a cyber-cheer go out when you announce
I would also like to add for the benefit of all reading this that I
support the Moderators in the job that they have set themselves to
do. It is not so easy as one might think, and what is currently
occuring is an example of that.
