Poll on cultivation with sutras etc.

Postby Will » Mon Jun 23, 2014 8:09 pm

Does one make much use of sutras-suttas, tantras or shastras in practice?

As many as three choices can be voted for.

I voted just for #5, since I find value in the entire range of Dharma scriptures.

I voted a mixture of some of the above since I've studied a little of everything except the tantras.
