Have you got an example of the "autocratic teachings" and "authoritarian Buddhism" that has made you wary?
Yes I do. But first, I'm waiting out the odd dynamic that's going on here now. I'm not sure if it's just me or if it's something in the new membership guidelines. I'll get back to you later.
There are often turbulent undercurrents, I prefer friendly disagreement myself! I don't know what it is about Internet discussion that brings out the Mr Hyde in everyone, I'm including myself only as Ms Hyde, of course. :namaste:
