"To reject practice by saying, 'it is conceptual!' is the path of fools. A tendency of the inexperienced and something to be avoided."

"Even though you have recognized your essence, if you do not get accustomed to it,
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."

Hell fells very real. Arguably since the mind is 7 times more powerful in the bardo it would feel 7 times more real. Calling this world real is also a fallacy. To a real Buddhist Hell is not a metaphor. Gods are also not metaphors. Meditation does not stop at Shamatha. This is some Western Buddhist pseudo-intellectual feeling important by picking on stupid people.

Sure, but funny, "Western Buddhist pseudo-intellectual feeling important by picking on stupid people" and all. In fact that is probably why it is funny. :smile: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9HGVm9DG ... r_embedded
