You will be carried away by the enemy of thoughts, like a small child in a battle field.
So long as you are not free from the limitations of accepting and rejecting,
That long will you not recognize the view of the innermost secret heart-essence."

In this video, DJKR says something which is very, very important, I think.

He says, "I don't want Buddhism to become a culture."

This is actually a profound statement.

Most Buddhist centers are little cultures unto themselves. Soooo important to see and understand this.

Most lineages are cultures unto themselves.

Some countries are this way too.

This video is only secondarily about tobacco.

IMO, it is about the dangers inherent in a religion becoming a culture, and in this case, Buddhism.
I am well aware of my idiocy. I am also very aware that you too are an idiot. Therein lies our mutuality.
