The Path of Dhamma

The path of Dhamma is no picnic . It is a strenuous march steeply up the hill . If all the comrades desert you , Walk alone ! Walk alone ! with all the Thrill !!

Honestly though, your posts in this thread come across as fanatical:
Sanjay PS wrote:Hence , i whole heartedly agree that atheism is a parasite trying to infect all that is wise and beneficial .
Sanjay PS wrote:Until the age of 28 i held this very unhealthy view , although the seed of Dhamma was very much there . After , the onset of right view and after readily understanding the Four Noble Truths , and doing Vipassana , did the mind very naturally come to understand ( also feel ) , beings below and beings above , however , to the extent they are as much unreal , as we are , since it is just the proclivity of mind that springs up various states of well-being and woe .
and new-agey:
Sanjay PS wrote:With some understanding of Dhamma , one naturally comes to revere life , its sanctity , pure hearted beings , whether they belong to this religion or that religion , this plane or that plane , utterly poor and destitute or rich and powerful ; all that is recognized is the purity of heart .

It lacks substance because it sounds like marketing rhetoric for something that has nothing to do with Dhamma. I'm sure you think it sounds wise or insightful, but honestly, it does not.

Blind faith is an unskillful false dhamma.
