I admit I dislike monk and dislike reading all Buddha's scriptures / books becouse to me all the words / termology used is too difficult . At my current awareness, I belief knowing Buddha is very easy , fun and interesting if we follow Siddharta basic tips . If hard / boring it must be wrong .
Learning from Buddha scriptures / books , from monks or even Siddharta's teaching is only to gain knowledge not awareness . In Buddha we have to gain awareness .
I have read all of your posts. I understand you do not wish to study in depth, but you cannot avoid reading. Perhaps it would be best to discuss Buddhism with others off-line, rather than on a forum. You will be continually referred to texts, quotations, written sources, and so on -- it is simply unavoidable to both learn and discuss, especially in this format obviously, and not be expected to read.
I read your posts, you are reading mine, and you have read others. Why not try to read some basic texts about Buddhism as well? We cannot discuss the ideas in a vacuum very effectively.
Best wishes --
Dear sir you do have a point to discuss off-line , perhaps that is one of the way . Sir I am confused , why we have to have referral on texts / books ?
Siddharta maybe passed aways thousands years ago as I wish to learn / know his teaching as little as possible since I do not know what is actually his or not but prefer to belief in his fear / his search / what I gather and belief of his findings with perhaps some of his gossips on quotation which I prefer to belief is from him .
I want to belief he said ...." strive for your own liberation with diligence "...." believe nothing no matter where you read , who have said or even if I had said it unless it agrees with your own common sense and reasons"..." lets my teaching be your master".
I truely belief in his search and wish to be " in" what he sees but maybe not his style , not his culture .
I hope to discuss base on our own awareness without referrals to any text .
