do the three burning lamps on the front page of the
village's website symbolize buddha, dharma and shamga?
doesn't the purporse that the symbolic metaphors that buddhism
is fraught with (of which the three burning lamps is but an
example) supposed to serve fail if those who pursue the dharma
are merely fascinated by the symbolism of such metaphors
while failing to understand what these metaphors actually
symbolize? i do not mean to question the honesty with
which people practice the dharma in the states but one
has to admit that there is this prevalence of superficiality
in the conditions in which most practice it. but this is not
to admit that there aren't any who are devoted to the fullest
extension to the pracitice of the dharma.
