- Sep 2, 2004In fact, you did not mention "thoughts and emotions". You said that the teachings were advanced, gratuitous, and "teaching that kind of stuff to a beginner is like teaching calculus to algabra student".
My point was, if you are not interested in studying the Dharma, then maybe you are not ready for the Dharma. Then again, if you would be more specific as to what you are having trouble with, there is someone here that would be glad to help. None of us begin knowing everything. We learn and evolve. To do that you have to be open to it all. That which you don't understand, now, will come easier, later.
May you release the Buddha within you in this lifetime,
