I have been thinking about a lot of stuff(styles of learning and how they integrate with the traditional transition method of some schools of Buddhism, that sort of thing) and realized that I don't "know" that many people who have been dedicated towards the Dharma, worked toward the goal of realizing the Dharma and got some form of tangible progress. I know the Buddha(kinda), the HHDL(again, kinda ish), and I think my teacher is pretty attained but I haven't been able to sit down with them over a soda and veggie shoarma.
So, who has gotten tangible progress?
Now, you will be able to veer off a little if you like but I would humbly ask that you at least post the following.
2. How long you engaged in said Tradition/Practice.
3. What was the fruit?
Also I'd love from all types, from people who don't snap at their coworkers to individuals who could levitate to my house and remind me that I need to go to bed.
1) Tibetan Buddhism (Gelugpa, FPMT)
2) about a year
3) I'm a lot happier: not only does the meditation make me happier, but it seems to have also given me a way of tapping into a basic happiness in my ordinary life. I find myself smiling at the oddest times.
