The Buddha

I had an important practical realization recently.

I remain agnostic as to lineage. One aspect I like about the Buddhist path is that Buddhists do not fight with each other about who is right. The Dalai Lama has said that anyone who recognizes the centrality of the Four Noble Truths is a Buddhist. Teachers from one school will borrow ideas, insights, and stories from other schools.
