“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

I must confess that I find it rather strange that someone would come here and post a thread "The reason im not Theravada." It's a bit like me joining Dharma Wheel and posting "The reason I'm not Vajrayana"....what would be the point?

Although maybe I've lost the plot and have missed something , it is past my bedtime now at 12.30am !

Thag 1.20. Ajita - I do not fear death; nor do I long for life. I’ll lay down this body, aware and mindful.

Even if my body should be burnt to death
In the fires of hell,
I would endure it for myriad lifetimes
As your companion in practice

If there is one thing we all should be dogmatic about, it is in rejecting sectarianism.

Wherever you stand, whatever you practice, whatever you read, whatever you understand: reject sectarianism. It is unwholesome. It is fruitless. It causes division and harm. It is to be abandoned.

It is almost never based on close engagement with texts, nor sufficient historical knowledge, nor realisation.

So ask yourself 'what is it based on?' and give it up. There is no place for it.
