A reliable testimony from a good authority is a valid means of knowing.


Indeed! Hence all Buddhist Sutras starting with "Thus have I heard..."

Interestingly, in the two rather long-ish threads we've had on the Taego Order here at DW, I don't think that question has come up. Or has it?

In any event, I can corroborate (also from reliable testimony from more than one trustworthy source) that some Korean temples are exceptionally strict. I've also learned that some are not.
Thanks to the help of generous sponsors (most of them from DharmaWheel), I'm doing a Vajra Armor (Dorje Kotrab) self-retreat this summer. May the merit be yours!
