- Dec 3, 2006Hi, Han -
Not much internet time for me while here in Texas, but I saw this post of yours and felt *obliged* to reply: Your comments are wildly off the the mark! You say much too much that is positive about me, and absurdly too much that is negative about you!! (Also, don't forget that even negative comparisons of oneself with others is "conceit", my friend.) You are an extraordinarily knowledgeable and articulate Buddhist - an impressive Dhamma scholar!
/Thus is how ye shall see all this fleeting world: a star at dawn, a bubble in a stream, a flash of lightning in a summer cloud, a flickering lamp, a phantom, and a dream/

Dear Sarah (and Howard),
> Sarah: I'm sure Han would also sympathise with yourrecent concerns and have been following the
discussions closely. Han, can I encourage you to add
any of your reflections on the sotapanna-sila/ reasons
for not killing/mixed motives whilst 'doing good' and
other recent controversial topics?
Han: Sarah, I appreciate your encouragement. I respect
Howard and appreciate all his posts. But I am
reluctant to add my reflections on those controversial
topics, because my reflections will be very
elementary. Howard and those members with whom he is
discussing are dhamma literary giants, and I feel that
they are a class of their own, a class which is far up
for me to join.
