YES! Judith, thanks for confirming my interpretation of this teaching. As a Buddhist practitioner, I've always struggled with the traditional commentary on this practice - that you are to literally cut yourself off from experiencing the world. It's not practical or desirable "off the cushion" and therefore can't lead to sustainable enlightenment. However, learning (through asana and meditation, etc.) to cut through our REACTION to worldly phenomena is very desirable and very practical in the "real world". Please keep teaching, Judith-ji!
This is a much needed article. Too much silliness floats around out there. Truly compassionate and rational! Thanks BE!
Beautiful article. Thank you.
Wonderfully stated. I have passed it on to my students. Thank you.
