Hello to Bj and everyone! Here's the instructions you asked for Bj. First, open this page to view it in the edit mode...either click on the edit tab above, or simply double-click a blank space on the page. When you're done, simply click the 'Cancel' button to proceed with your wonderful contributions. You'll need to do this so you can see the linking and template useage when applying it here. Here we go:

The 1st page is your original title page with the 2 'red-links' on it. One is the Wylie 'red-link' and the other is the Tibetan Unicode 'red-link'. Okay? First open your original title page and put the ' link on both your red-link entries. Simply highlight them and click the ' link at the bottom of the sandbox. That should do it for the first page, unless there's something you may like to add or take out.


2nd page: This is THE example of how to get the second (the Wylie-title page) of the 3 pages to follow IN THIS ORDER shown below. First, click on your Wylie-transliterated 'red-link' which opens the sandbox (the edit-mode blank page FOR that entry)...then make your particular entry like this: (I'm using the 'Gyalwang Drukpa Rinpoche' entry ONLY as an example here. Do this with each of your particular entries before you go too much further. This will take a bit of back-tracking on your part, but this really needs your attention...okay? :-) Then you can proceed with your most valuable contributions. :-)

________________________________________________ Bj here, I just wanted to say I will not be working for a long while. My house was broken into and my two notebook stolen and my credit and debit cleaned out. I will not be able to replace my computer for a few months or my programs. Only wish I had not lost like 1500 hours of translation and typed pecha. O well my karma is a little better now. yours Bj Lhundrup ___________________________________________________________________________

Hello Bj, Man does THAT ever suck, huh? Well, I'm sure we all agree that we look forward to your return whenever. I hope at least getting another computer comes surprisingly easy for you. I've had an identity crisis with someone posing as a PayPal rep, complete with the official PayPal logo and all. I also had at another time a virus completely wipe out EVERYTHING on my computer. I looked at it the same as you re: karmic balancing. I was able to rebuild it again just from memory...for the most part that is. I fortunately found that the stuff I couldn't recall wasn't needed anyway...and as a result, my computer NOW works faster and better than ever! Of course, I also changed to McAffee Antivirus from Symantec/Norton. That seems to work MUCH more efficiently. Anyway...like I said: We look forward to your return when things get settled again. I hope all goes well for you and thank you once again. --Richard 10:21, 3 August 2008 (EDT) ___________________________________________________________________________

(By the way Bj, Thank you again for your wonderful work and contributing!) Really utilize the 'Preview' button to check and see IF your entries are doing what you want...like ALL the time before 'Saving'. Here's how it is done for the 2nd page it's really not as complicated as it may sound at first...actually quite simple once you 'get-the-hang' of it:

Gyalwang Drukpa Rinpoche

རྒྱལ་དབང་འདྲུག་པ་རིན་པོ་ཆེ།


Gyalwang Drukpa Rinpoche, the head lama of the Drukpa Kagyu tradition. Also known as the Gyalwang Drukchen and Druk Tamche Khyenpa "All-knowing Drukpa" ('brug thams cad mkhyen pa ) the successive Gyalwang Drukpas are considered to be incarnations of Tsangpa Gyare Yeshe Dorje(1161-1211) founder of the Drukpa Kagyu school and one of the main disciples of Lingje Repa Pema Dorje. Followers of the Drukpa Kagyu school consider Tsangpa Gyare Yeshe Dorje to have been an emanation of Avalokiteshvara and incarnation of Naropa. This also applies to the subsequent Gyalwang Drukpa incarnations.

There were two immediate incarnations of the 4th Gyalwang Drukpa, Kunkhyen Pema Karpo (1527-1592) - each recognized by a different group of followers: Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal (1594-1651) and Pagsam Wangpo, (1593-1653). Pagsam Wangpo was favored by the powerful Tsang ruler Phuntsog Namgyal (1597-1621) and eventually recognized as the official incarnation in Tibet. Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal went to Bhutan and established his lineage there.

3rd page: This is THE example on how to get the third (the Tibetan Unicode page) of all three to follow in order, ie. the english-based name, the Wylie-based name, AND the Tibetan Unicode name. For this page, click on your Tibetan Unicode 'red-link' to open the sandbox for THAT title page, then make your entry like this:

(^^this example was 'ga' in Tibetan Unicode, but use whatever is the appropriate category for what you're entering). These all NEED to be in THIS exact order to come out right. The Wylie-transliterated AND the Tibetan Unicode entries ON THE ORIGINAL TITLE PAGE need to have the (example word, name, or phrase) link on either end, and so does the Tibetan alphabet category entry (here it's 'ga') on the Wylie title page. (see 2nd page example for that above.) Well, this should do it for you. Please don't hesitate to ask for further instructions IF you need them. Thanks again Bj. Oh and please enter some email and profile info. about you...okay? Click on your 'red-linked' name and "enter away!" --Richard 04:57, 1 August 2008 (EDT)
