Re: Enlightenment according to Hinayana

In the end, the best we can do is agree on the basic principles of Buddha's teachings and leave it at that and try to collaborate despite our differences, since there are not many Buddhists in the world, and many in other religious and secular ideologies who would happily see Buddhism as a whole de...

Re: White Tara Retreat from Afar - Dec 3 - Jan 2

:) I am really looking forward to it, too. It is great, the live internet teachings, the daily Bodhisattva Breakfast corner teachings, being able to send in questions about anything that comes up in retreat, and have them answered. Very well run long distance retreats. 'See' you there, Lisehull. :)
