"Sona, before you became a monk you were a musician". Sona said that was true. So the Buddha said, "As a musician which string of the lute produces a pleasant and harmonious sound. The over-tight string?" "No," said Sona, "The over-tight string produces an unpleasant sound and is moreover likely to break at any moment." "The string that is too loose?" Again, "No, the string that is too loose does not produce a tuneful sound. The string that produces a tuneful sound is the string that is not too tight and not too loose."

I would like to stop the discussion here and point out section 4 of the Terms of Service. This discussion is getting perilously near subjects that can suddenly ignite into angry, bitter fighting. For that reason, certain controversies are not discussed here, and in practice we don't even go near them.

I would advise those who wish to continue not to put much effort into their posts, since they are likely to be removed from the board.

My apologies.

Define Worship, if you would please?


I'm not sure how. That sounds like a good anthropological question.
