Material from redirected article[edit]

Someone had started a new article at Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche. I redirected it here and below is the complete text of that version, in case anyone wants to make use of it.—Nat Krause(Talk!·What have I done?) 18:06, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

Text[edit]

Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche (born: 1935 in Golok, East Tibet)

(Note: "Tulku" and "Rinpoche" are not Tarthang's middle and last names, respectively. Rather, "Tulku" is a title referring to his status as a "reincarnated teacher", and "Rinpoche" is a title referring to his status as a "precious teacher" or "precious jewel" or "precious one".)

Tarthang received traditional training from the great masters of his time in the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism. He left Tibet in 1959 after the disruption of his culture. From 1959 to 1967, he taught Buddhism at Sanskrit University in India. In 1968, Rinpoche came to the United States where he has lived and worked continuously to support Tibetan refugees, preserve Tibetan culture and make the teaching of Buddhism accessible to Western students. Rinpoche initiated many projects and established over 20 organizations including the Nyingma Institute, Tibetan Aid Project, Dharma Publishing, the Yeshe De text preservation project, and the international Nyingma Centers.

Rinpoche is a visionary thinker who has authored over a dozen books that expand understanding of the human heart and mind.

Current edits[edit]

I will be editing this page as well as associated pages, as I am currently living at one of Tarthang Tulku's retreat centers. I'll try to provide citation as necessary, and if possible. Maytag (talk) 03:45, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessaryily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request it's removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:
