(*Note: If you were invited to this community, you were not picked randomly. I saw a post in another community and thought that you displayed compassion. Please join us and grace us with it. Namaste)
This community used to be all about the book/movie Dharma Punks. It still has that element to it but presently its also about Buddhism in general regardless of you consider yourself a punk or not and regardless of what tradition you follow. You don't have to be a buddhist per say although that would be ideal lol (but if you're just someone thats interested in Buddhism or meditation, you're welcome too). Basically, I just wanted to provide a peaceful place where likeminded people can congregate and talk about their experiences, and teach, and learn. I MUST STRESS, THAT I DO MODERATE THIS COMMUNITY, NO TROLLS ARE ALLOWED, DISRESPECTFUL BEHAVIOR IS NOT TOLERATED, AND IF YOU CANNOT AGREE TO DISAGREE, I'M SORRY TO SAY BUT YOU ARE NOT WELCOME HERE. THIS IS A PEACEFUL COMMUNITY. WE PRACTICE COMPASSION HERE, NOT DRAMA.
Namaste & Rock on!
People like us, don't like RULES (lol) so lets call them GUIDELINES
-Please post an intro: We'd like to know who you are
-Please be respectful towards your fellow members. This generally means treating people as you'd like to be treated with dignity and respect. Allow others to have and express their own opinions as you will surely be expressing yours. Keep "right speech" in mind when expressing yourself especially when its directed at other people.
-There are some things that won't be tolerated in this community if you'd like to stay here and it basically goes back to respect. So please, no racism, sexism, homophobia, or anything of the sort.
-Try to keep posts on the topics expressed in the community summary
-No nudity in pictures. There are more appropriate places for that.
-When to use an lj cut: Pictures may be posted but if they exceed 400 pixels either lengthwise or widthwise please put it behind a cut. Please also put long posts (posts exceeding 3 paragraphs) behind a cut, you may promote SIMILAR communities here but the whole post must be put behind a cut
-Please do not delete posts. If you wish for a post to be taken down, please see the mod and they will do it for you. Also please do not tag posts. This is the mods job and they will surely do it.
