Re: greetings, all of y'all, as some say in USA

Yeah, still no joy registering freshly at DW, even with different names. No problem. It was just a whim (!), or I'd have done it some time ago. :lol:

I think DW has a bias against D_W.

All's swell.

Re: greetings, all of y'all, as some say in USA

Thanks, Anjali, No sweat. Yes, I replied via PM also, to your kind message. Tnx. But no problem: I do not need to be verified and authorized on DW. I was just trying, and have given up days ago. Tnx again. We're done. If ZFI returns "to the air", I shall be a very happy camper. As now. That is all. ...

Music

VZt7J0iaUD0 Nah, doesn't seem to work as at ZFI, where the appropriate [non-]HTML markings, or whatever, would instill the appropriate effects. (this new board does not put an effective wrapper on YouTube "addresses"). --Joe ps the referenced music is the particular song, "Luka". The singer went to...

Re: Whats your practice?

Kudos, all who care, and all who practice, and share Buddhadharma here and everywhere in daily life. To start, and then to continue, it all requires reflection, examination, compassion, mercy, wisdom. As the saying goes (went?), "The unexamined Liver is not worth a pint," ...or something like that. ...

Re: greetings, all of y'all, as some say in USA

Hi, Linda, and thanks. Thanks, too, for the info about DW. I "registered" there but have not found it possible to sign in successfully yet (for about a week). I never had a registration there before, and it seems that no one is lately checking new sign-ups and allowing people in. I've thus given up....

Re: Whats your practice?

elG, What do you mean by entry point? > elG speaking: I mean more or less that, which shows when Googling: "entering the gate of Chan", "Guo Gu". Fine business. My teacher used the words with me, "Entered the door of Ch'an". This was on May 28, 1979. This opening lasted 2 1/2 months. As I've written...

Re: greetings, all of y'all, as some say in USA

hi, Ani, et al. , The important thing would be to get ZFI back , in a good and secure way, as soon as possible. There is a great resource there, in all its posts, which are searchable via the phpBB provisions in the native phpBB "board-" software structure. Wonderful! And it would be great to contin...

Yes.

Zen Buddhism, yes. Or Ch'an; Son (Seon); Or Thien. Practice with teacher and sangha, and awaken. This is everyone's wish for everyone else. The Jewel Net of Indra is not just a dry, inanimate, mirror of Geological and Astronomical realities. BEINGS are included. ;) Thus, don't hesitate to become aff...

Re: Whats your practice?

My practice is Ch'an. Or, Zen practice. I've had teachers and sanghas in both. Two have died, but not left me flat. Present sangha and teacher is Soto. Oh, and how I love(d) the Rinzai (Linji) way of working, too, as well. But I am not a specialist. Nonetheless, I admit I am a very local master of t...

greetings, all of y'all, as some say in USA

Hi, good to see some goings-on. When ZFI is back on the air, that will be a fine day. Maybe Ani, el Gatito, flutemaker, ...can help Gregory to reset the ZFI site in whatever particulars the hosting outfit requires. If more money is needed, please let me know, as I was one of the three who funded the...
