Or perhaps Catholics in different communities behave differently.
Sure. I've noticed that Catholics in countries where Catholicism is the traditional majority religion are quite different from the Catholics in countries where it is not.

Anyway, :focus:

Here is an update from Culadasa:
Culadasa wrote: Dear Dharma Friends,

I’m writing to say I’m sorry. I’m sorry for the harm and suffering I have caused my wife and family. I engaged in adultery and wrong speech, and failed to honor my commitment to my marriage. I’m also sorry for the pain I have caused the members of the Dharma Treasure Board, who have all been supportive friends for many years. And I’m sorry for the hurt, disappointment, and confusion this revelation has caused you who are learning about it now. (To be clear, I engaged in consensual relationships with adult women, none of whom were my students.)

Please bear with me as I take time to understand what led me to my choices and address all that’s happened. I intend to enter therapy, and I look forward to hearing and reflecting upon your responses to this letter as a part of my process of cleaning up and growing up. As part of that process I have also begun to work with dharma peers. Please be patient with me as I begin to understand the full impact of what I’ve done. More information to follow, I’ll communicate with you as I’m able.

Words from a Buddhist meditation teacher

The truth is that Dhamma is hard, deep and subtle. It is definitely not a set of meditation techniques seasoned with some comfortable philosophy.
