Tidy Up Your Practice Using Classic Buddhist Wisdom
A different principle each week
Tidy up your attachment to the teacher
Rely on the message of the dharma and not the personality of the teacher
Tidy up your attachment to linguistics and logic
Rely on the meaning of the message and not just the words
Tidy up your reluctance to change
Rely on the real depth/transformational meaning and not just the words- how the message changes your life and consciousness
Tidy up the quality of your own practice
Rely on your own wisdom mind and practice - Rely on the insights of your own practice and knowing the taste of liberation.
