Externalists

Post by Thug4lyfe » Sun Dec 04, 2011 8:54 am

From browsing and trolling this forum it seems I have been very wrong with my practice!

I guess Buddhism should really be about attachment to external influences and increasing "revolutionary anger" to reach Nirvana!

Thanks for the schooling!

In case you didn't know FE, there are two types of truth and two types of bodhicitta: relative and ultimate.

If what you've been doing is trolling, you're not doing a very good job of it.
