Dharma Talk v.s Zen Talk
- Dharma is the truth as seen from a Buddha
- The Dharma is what a Buddha says from what they see/observe.
Best way to listen
- Use your critical thinking
- Don’t just believe because someone said it
- No such thing as a stupid question
- Every question will have a different answer! Even if the same question has been asked.
Be Carefulof what you read
- Lots of garbage zen books out there!
- Many Zen books impart nihilism and deny the soul
- Many Zen books is about the Japanism and the LARPING (Live Action Role Playing) lifestyle, and not about actual Zen
