    Thank you for the information and clarification regarding Wat Bhoman. Vajrayana is a sub-sect of Mahayana isn’t it?

  2. Trinley Chodron Says:

    Hi, please refer to this : there are explainations of different schools and lineage of Buddhism
    http://www.buddhanet.net/e-learning/history/schools.htm

    anyhow, all Yanas are eventually connected to the same root- Buddha-yana ;).
    the diffrences of them are apperance and methods. however, all are leading to the same key essense of lord buddha teaching and path.

    Hi, It is indeed a great site for me. Knowning Master Bu Jing is on internet website, I must say, lots of thanks to the planner. I will follow up all the available site to date.

    Didn’t have much personnal contact with Master Bu Jing but at least my
    few meeting with him during childhood time was full of inspiration with respect and confident in life in regard with his blessing.

    I sincerely thanks those who make this site successful and hope it will be long as the teaching of Master Bu Jing.

    Respectfully,

    Hello, I am very happy to learn about your presence in Thailand. I am a student of Lama Tharchin Rinpoche (who is, himself, a student of Thinley Norbu Rinpoche.) I will be coming to Thailand to live in 2-3 years from now, and would like to begin making contact with the Thai Sangha. Do you have any suggestions how I might be able to make friends with Thai (Vajrayana) practitioners at this time ?
    I am very happy to hear about you, and wish all of you the best.
