Externalists

From browsing and trolling this forum it seems I have been very wrong with my practice!

I guess Buddhism should really be about attachment to external influences and increasing "revolutionary anger" to reach Nirvana!

Thanks for the schooling!

In case you didn't know FE, there are two types of truth and two types of bodhicitta: relative and ultimate.

Meditation and conduct become delusion,

One will be like a blind man who has no eyes."

If what you've been doing is trolling, you're not doing a very good job of it.

Cool story bro, tell it again.
    How foolish you are,
    grasping the letter of the text and ignoring its intention!
