Author Guidelines

Some guidelines for contributing to the Dharma Wiki:

  • For states and stages: key things are how to identify them, with every criteria and guideline and variation and aspect we can possibly pack in, where they tend to fall in a sequence, how to get into them, and their benefits and downsides and traps.
  • For terms and concepts: not only what they are, but why they are useful for practice and our lives, as well as whatever controversies are relevant, and how our DhO definitions may differ from the standard dogma, so that is already addressed and made clear.
  • wikify every term that might deserve its own page even if there is not time to add content to that page.
  • Proper grammar, capitalization and spelling should be used whenever possible, though sometimes a loose and vernacular use of language that adds some down-to-earth feel is good.
