I'm currently re-reading Zen & The Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. When I read this page I had to type it out and post in my personal LJ but I thought it was worth of posting here. ( Quote from Z&tAoMMCollapse )
Does anyone know anything about or have any experiences with Shri Ram Chandra Mission? They are hosting a free introduction to meditation seminar at my school on friday and I'm just not sure if it's worth my while to go. Any info anyone can relate would be greatly appreciated!
i was a member of the buddhists community here on el-jay
WAS a member until today
because there's all this drama as of late in the community mainly caused be a certain person named son_of_art, a self confessed non-buddhist pagan who loved to stir shit up, tell people they weren't being good buddhists, resort to profanity and name calling and generally act like a fucking prick!
now on the buddhist profile sheet, it says Maintainers will rarely -- virtually never -- act as moderators
well that was obvious, with how much shit this son_of_art person was able to put up in that community and the pathetic thing was that people kept saying how he was teaching us compassion and all sorts of other dumb things it's like someone being abused THANKING the person that's abusing them
well anyway, i made what i thought would be a humourous post to illustrate it
What to do when you lose all capabilities of being compassionate over a persistent pest. Meditation?? Temporary fix, but the pest is still there before and after and the constant reminder of the pest is ever present. One who seeks nothing more than to bother and annoy. Purpose of life seems to be a mission of being a thorn in your side, even if everything the pest has educated himself with says to do differently.
Move on to space that is pest free??? bodhisattvas Seems like a good answer.
Follow on over to bodhisattvas and let the sanity return without pests and poor maintainership.
Join bodhisattvas and leave the waste of a community that is buddhists. It is time to take action and move on to greener pastures. Let the mod and the pest get off by themselves.
