Greetings Tilt,

I don't see one, which is why I'm asking.

Greetings Tilt,

I only object when the Buddha's teachings as portrayed as not being sufficiently comprehensive in-and-of themselves for stream-entry and subsequent liberation... the notion that they somehow need to be elaborated on, built upon, or extended upon... or that they only show the results of the practice, and not what the practice actually is - as if the Buddha taught with a closed fist and we therefore need separate "techniques" (transmitted outside the scriptures) to achieve those results.

I'm not authorized to download that attachment. From a Buddhist perspective, that is awesome, but it means I only see the word "Image". It's sort of ironic.

Thanks Dave, Robert, Mike, Tilt and Retro.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
