Chögyal Namkhai Norbu is featured in Faith Matters Column of the Greenfield Recorder

Here is the link for the feature of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu in the local newspaper, the Greenfield Recorder.  It seems you may have to register to read the entire article. 

Each Saturday, a different faith leader in Franklin County offers a personal religious perspective in this space. Rinpoche writes:
“I will try to explain what Buddhadharma means. People who are interested in Buddhadharma already know what the term means. However, I think it is very useful and important that we are more mindful of why Buddhadharma exists, what it means and what it is for. These are very important things because in general when people follow Buddhadharma they consider it to be only a religious consideration. Of course, it can be an aspect of religion. It can also be an aspect of philosophy or have a more intellectual aspect, but we must remember how and what Buddha taught and why Buddha transmitted that teaching. It doesn’t mean that Buddha taught his teaching in order to create a kind of school or religion. That is not the main point”.   --click on the link above to continue reading
