Yes (one way or another reunification as it currently is or reunification under the USSR).

No. Two teachers.

Is it possible to hold Camelia sinensis as a bonsai at the window in a living room?

No (I think bonsais are only for miniature trees).

Did I answer correctly?

No. I believe. :tongue:
Bonsais are for miniature woody plants. But maybe it will not enjoy the climate of a living room. :thinking: We have to observe that.

Do you enjoy excursions to the outdoors?

Have you heard any genuinely funny Buddhist jokes other than the one about the guy seeking change from a hot dog vendor?

Yes. Hello Kitty is Schroedinger's Cat, its feline state determined by its observer.

Is there a real need for a genuinely American school of Buddhism?

No. (Give it 200 years.).

Is Western Buddhism limited in its practical appeal to Asian migrants and the highly educated?

No. Vogue is limited, buddhism is unlimited. :smile:

Can you apply dharmic ethics on day to day life?

Yes. (As long as I'm permitted to maintain Dzogchen view. ;)

Are the sizable numbers of Westerners who meditate at Buddhist centers but visit Hindu gurus and/or engage in a rainbow of New Age practices properly considered Buddhists?

Yes. I'm able to inform you that "the sizeable numbers of Westerners" have now been considered in a proper manner by myself and I allude to an arbitrary, and thus self-fulfilling, notion that they're Buddhists.

If I suggested that orgasm is a temporal cessation of the ego and the word "Buddha" could appear in your mind the next time you're engaged in actions which may induce orgasm, would you be offended in any way whatsoever ?
