Mr. Sherab Gyatso,
I appreciated your quote. I have followed the discussions of the past few days with interest.
To quote the Ninth Gyalwang Karmapa " Conceptual knowledge is not enough...you must have the conviction of personal experience."
I believe that this was the point you were making regarding the difference between being well read and actually being able to incorporate the concepts into practice. I hope I am understanding correctly.
My name is Debby, and I hadn't received any emails recently so I thought I had been dropped from the list. I am not active in posting , but enjoy reading everyone's thoughts.

A daily quotation from the book "Glimpse After Glimpse " by Sogyal Rinpoche.
June 28 Reflect on this: The realization of impermanence is paradoxically the only thing we can hold on to, perhaps our only lasting possession. It is like the sky, or the earth. No matter how much everything around us may change or collapse, they endure. Say we go through a shattering emotional crisis . . . our whole life seems to be disintegrating . . . our husband or wife suddenly leaves us without warning. The earth is still there; the sky is still there. Of course, even the earth trembles now and again, just to remind us that we cannot take anything for granted. . . .
