Unable to post

Recommended Posts

I joined this forum a few weeks ago, but have been unable to post. I'm not sure why, or how to get approved to post. I sent a private message to the admin, but never got a reply. So I would much appreciate it if someone might help get me some sort of ability to post, however temporary or tentative, so that I might join in on some of the conversations here. If not, I understand, but would appreciate an explanation.





Thanks for adding me!


Okay, as to personal stuff, I have a long history as a spiritual seeker, going back to the age of 12. Began with an enquiry into God, moved onto J. Krishnamurti, then Ramana Maharshi, bumped into Papaji in 1974 in Switzerland when I was sixteen, then met Bubba Free John at 17, with whom I enjoyed and suffered a very long relationship up until a decade or so ago, at which point I left and was drawn back to Ramana and self-enquiry. Also have a strong draw to Buddhism, especially through the four noble truths, which I feel is the best route to transcendence and the dzogchen approach. In general, I'm very eclectic and have a lot of rather strange ideas that reflect the strangeness of my background. I came across this forum by accident while looking for links to some obscure Buddhist scriptures and saw a discussion here on them. Don't know if I'll be posting much, I'm more interested in learning than pontificating, but don't get me started.


Oh, I'm 56, am married with two grown children, and I live in the Mount Shasta area of northern California, on the edge of the forest, living a very simple and quiet life.

hope that suffices as an intro

Hello brokenyogi, and welcome to the forums!


We're happy to have you here. I'm afraid the system was just not cooperating in your case, but now you're in and I'd like to ask you to edit your post and tell us all a thing or two about yourself :-)


In the meantime:


Please take the time to read the two posts pinned at the top of this Welcome page and take a look at the forum terms and rules. This covers all you need to know when getting started.


For the first week you will be restricted to ten posts per day but after that you can post as much as you like. Also, until you’ve posted fifteen times in the forums, you’ll be a “Junior Bum” with somewhat restricted access and will be allowed only two private messages per day.


Good luck in your pursuits and best wishes to you,


SC and the TTB team
