ha!

so we should shorn buddhism of every concept that is not obvious?

:lol2: :heya:

That is not the way I would draw a conclusion from what was stated, but there is a seed of truth in it.

question: :lol2: ... do all zen practitioners practice with tiantai comprehension of the truth? do any - significant practitioners i guess i mean?


hmm, i don't really want to be the guy that likes to set up divisions in buddhism... but is that a division in buddhism :lol2: ??


RE brands: yes i know that Huifeng was not saying that the different churches are brands. i was just trying to say that what might be glossed as branding is actually - at least very common sense!

cheers :rbow:
