"Once delusion is extinguished, your wisdom naturally arises and you don’t differentiate suffering and joy. Actually, this joy and this suffering, they are the same."

Careful there.

This discussion has just settled down nicely from a tendency towards personal sniping, which is a really good example of Buddhist practice. Don't throw it away.

This teaching can have some clarity points about the last posts in exploring buddhism. May it do so and clear away all confusion.
Mouse-down-rolling requested please.
ps As mentioned we need oral instructions from our master.

Tell me please, how many awakened people do you know? I mean, people that openly admit to be awakened. We both know Sakyamuni did that, so it is not faux-pas. I heard Shinzen Young proclaiming to be awakened. So we have two. I heard him saying that there are maybe few hundred awakened people in our times. But feel free to quote statements from any time period. According to wikipedia we have 350-500 millions followers of Buddha Dharma. If practice is effective in 1%, then we should have realized Buddhas in a number able to populate small country. Certainly you wont have problem with finding confirming quotes. Even if it is 0.1% that task shouldn't be hard. If is it below 0.001%, is deliberate practice effective or not?

I was inspired by your post to look up Shinzen Young. Interesting guy. He did an interview with Buddhist Geeks.
