    how much meditation have you actually done?  Because this characterization is quite wide of the mark.  I am curious where your understanding comes from

    Touch all that arises with a spirit of compassion

    •  Sounds like some reading would help too (3+ / 0-)

      Walpola Rahula's "What The Buddha Taught" is good.  I also like Lama Surya Das's "Awakening The Buddha Within".

      Also Batchelor and Hayes per other posts.

      P.S. Not suggesting you were giving study short shrift, just adding some stuff I like.
