It's Time - Ajahn Sujato
A call to arms for a reasoned and critical perspective on Buddhism.
Well, since it comes to disintegrating the Pali Canon, breeding rivalry between Buddhist movements, and the initiative to do so emerges from seemingly knowledgable and authoritative person, my words will be blunt.
I find Sujato's perspective political. His 'History of Mindfulness', for example, bears all signs of a political pamphlet - everything is painted in either black or white colour. That does not have anything in common with reasoned approach.
And when it comes to non-political matters, of meditation practice, there's hardly any reason and criticism left.
And in this new pamphlet, the very figures of speech - 'call to arms' - clearly suggest the political perspective. It seems to be much about power struggle between Buddhist movements. "History of Mindfulness" is apparently much about the legitimization of approach to practice that Sujato and his colleagues advocate. Sujato evidently tries to find more supporters to his side of power struggle.
The only reasoned and critical perspective is the perspective of peace, respect and understanding.
There's no reason to disregard the people's right to believe in what they want, and to attack their matters of belief.
Even more when it comes to ancient matters, which won't be ever hundred percent certain.
