and just to show how fair minded that I am – an excerpt from my Shut-In Stand Up Blog:
I live in Canada – and while Americans and Canadians use the same language – we are not speaking the same meanings or understandings of things.
Because the Dali Lama plays well in America – because Americans have such a terror of communism – that they’d rather support the Tibetian kind of self-serving so called enlightment – where monks navel gaze and the peasants do all the labour.
And in China – well, they stamped out that kind of buddhism centuries ago – and I would think that Americans should be appreciating Chinese Zen Buddhism – which requires Monks to grow and labour and support themselves
and not enslave the peasants to support monks who navel gaze.
AND how I also can see the problems of people that I more or less agree with.
