WordPress Share: An Historic Description of Awareness Holders of the Great Secret Mantra who are Resplendent in White Clothes and Long Hair

A brief oral commentary by Kyabje Kunzang Dorje Rinpoche

“…Ever since the time of the meeting of the three masters, Khenpo Shatarakshita, Lopon Padmasambhava and the Dharma King, Trison Detsen in 8th century Tibet, there were two divisions of sangha, known as the sangha of monastics with shaven-heads and the saffron robes…”

For the “facebook tele-evangelist Buddhist missionaries”

To all the wonderful facebook tele-evangelist Buddhist missionaries. I would like to congratulate you on having made it to the point where you see it to be very important to share quotes of other’s writing on facebook.

But only perhaps you maybe missing a minor point of actually “liking” these quotes yourself. The idea of posting them “for benefit of others” is much, much farther removed from your own well being then actual contemplation on these things yourself in order to change your own life.

And often there is a quite intense discussion started by these quotes. Today I blocked two people because they told me that I am commenting too much. And although I did it respectfully, without taking it to the personal level, my ideas and fact of commenting was very much not welcomed.

So, if the quote is nearly “stolen”. My idea was that actual discussion could be that “original” material that could justify it in some small way. As it would mean that we are in a way giving the ultimate credit to the author by absorbing their ideas and rewriting them in our own words?

On  a day when it is discouraged by two people, guess I write this and if you have read it, hope it is thought provoking in some good way.

There is the obvious point of posting long excerpts from book. If book is for sale it is possible to infringe on the copyright. So, I personally like to share only quotes that I myself like very much. Without need to justify my posting by possibly benefit of others. And own the book it comes from 99% of the time, often recommending others to get the book as well. Still posting any of these quotes is expressly not allowed by the publishers most times, on the copy right page, something along the lines of “without written permission from the publisher”.

One of the possible mitigating factors is to give good credits, like Title, Author, page # and online for sale link. But it does not change the fact.

Guilty thief,
