      Pratyekayāna simply means "solitary vehicle". It means, basically, something similar to "one's own path", or "following the Dharma on one's own without spiritual guidance from the spiritual community". It's something a Solitary Buddha (Pratyekabuddha) follows. Of course, I'm not a Buddha. Yet. :D

      No worries. Very cool; what Pagan group? Any in particular? :)

      I believe she is, yes, but I'm not sure. I would have to look up her academic training again. She's done some interesting census work on the Neopagan community, and the book on teen witches was probably an extension of that.

      Oh! It was a book actually, by some of the relatively few academics out there studying contemporary Paganism. It took me a while to remember, but it is this book (amazon link). Helen Berger's stuff in general is amazing; I've read most of her works.

      Hi, Polarbear.

      I haven't been on much in the last few days due to a network disconnection. I'm back now, but I haven't really looked around the forums much. Maybe I'll get involved in some debates when I start perusing the forums again. :D

      In punjabi tradition, the word "Sikh" means "learner of spirituality",
      So.. yes am sikh, am a learner. :)

      Anyways.. What about you ? to which religion do you belong to ?

      Currently I'm stuck in agribusiness, but what I'm trained in is botany/ecology/conservation. Turns out it's very hard to get a job in that field even fresh out of grad school. T_T

      Not too much, I've been participating in debate threads and the philosophy sections of the forum lately. There's always something good happening around here :D

      I used the word informally, my apologies. What I mean here is that Kaulachara is a discipline which includes within it the Vamachara approach, while Vamachara is an approach that includes within it disciplines, most prominently Kaulachara.

      They are almost, but not quite, synonymous.

      My post, by the way, on black metal & LHP was quite facetious, I actually used to be very into black metal, and still appreciate it. But a lot of the black metal is very silly stuff influenced by watered down "whoa, dude, eviiiil!" satanism, etc.
