Thanissaro Bhikkhu : We are not one

We Are Not One

Interdependence is not what you (and many others) may think.Thanissaro Bhikkhu

Twenty-five years ago, one of my teachers, Ajaan Suwat, led a meditation retreat in Massachusetts for which I served as translator. During a group interview session one afternoon, a retreatant new to Buddhism quipped, “You guys would have a good religion here if only you had a God. That way people would have some sense of support in their practice when things aren’t going well.”
