      Frank,

      I for one enjoy your posts. I have been reading about Buddhism for
      years and have only recently begun meditation. The one thing I am
      convinced of is that this stuff is not for the sensitive.

      Whether it's the Suttas, the Abhidhamma or the Commentaries they are
      all part of the raft in the "Raft Simile". If one can cross over
      with only the Suttas that is fine. If one needs the Abhidhamma and
      the Commentaries to cross over then why would anyone complain?
      When all these things are to be abandoned what does it matter if a
      raft or an ocean-going ship is used.
