Even though I disagree with it in part...
I have to get a response post on this up, but it's running late now...
But in short:
- There really is such a thing as enlightenment.
- It's less than is touted.
- There's indeed a lot of snake oil salesmen in the enlightenment business.
- Aping some other guy's not going to cut it.
- No, I can't sell it to you or tell you.
- The experience described by Mumon is, I think, rather useful in my experience.
