“In this weekly commentary on the lojong, I am not open to the feed becoming
a debate for people to nitpick Buddhism or my interpretations of Buddhist concepts.
(There are lots of places for debates.) I am more interested in hearing about
YOUR life or how it affected you or your practice awakening in some manner.”
This is the note I have at the end of my pages on lojong.
I have had some emails about why I say this.
I think I need to be very clear why I say this, for those of you who have never
seen zennies argue over points endlessly. There is a long tradition of
debate in Zen circles. While it is interesting if that is what you are after, I want this lojong offering to be personal. I find that Buddhist debates are rarely personal.
I find that the greatest teachers and my best learning comes from the personal, and so,
I am much more interested in hearing reader’s reflection of a personal nature on the slogan or my writing. There are many forums for debate among Buddhists.
