Re: How many hours a week do you meditate?

30 minutes twice a day seems to be the minimum requirement for me. 3x45 is when it gets good. (I'm lucky to have a lot of free time). But the question I was thinking about today is "What is your ratio of studying to sitting?" Thought I'd ask it here and see if anyone picks this up.

Re: Hi! Any rational people out there?

Re: A new interpretation of the Pali Canon

Wow! I just joined 10 minutes ago, hoping to find a few interesting, intelligent people who like to discuss Dhamma. And the first thing I come across is this lunacy!
