I'm an unaffiliated, independent western Buddhist. I am without sangha and without teacher which used to bother me a great deal but doesn't any more. I take what I need and leave the rest from all the traditions. I am also a great skeptic and very much appreciate that tendency in the Buddha himself. I have a deep and abiding commitment to the path and love and gratitude to the many teachers I have experienced only through their books and in large public addresses. I don't have particularly lofty spiritual goals. I'm not shooting for enlightenment. I am very attracted to "Don't Know Mind". But, mostly, I want to become more kind, that's all.
"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.
"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche
