  • Re: A question on learning methods and commitment

    The Gelug school of TB is very scholarly and philosophical, while the Nyigma and Kagyu are schools are much more practice oriented.

    Roger Jackson, the retired Asian religion professor who teaches once a month at the monastery I attend has said that the practice schools criticize the Gelugs for being too intellectual and not putting things into practice, while the Gelugs criticize them for not knowing what it is they are putting into practice.

    I'm just saying TB is far from being a monolith in its approach.

    There is a newbuddhist group on Insight Timer. It's small but it's there if you're interested.

    I got my first green star recently. I'm such a Buddhist now!
