Unique Buddha

In YinYana Buddhism the teachings are always given by the newest cult recruit. A trick I learned from an esoteric Rosicrucian group I attended for a short while.

People are remarkable and unique in terms of life experiences, present situation, practice efforts, difficulties, conflicted being and ultimately transcendent transformation and awakening.

Sadly I was kicked out of the YinYana immediately I started it. Members are not allowed.

However if you are a Buddha and even if a beginner, what is your teaching expression?

    More and more I'm understanding to point out what there is, rather than a belief.

    Although I don't teach, I don't feel qualified until I'm sure who exactly I am.

    You?

    By example which leads to experience....No special techniques apart from the good old keisaku

    I think my favourite teaching method would be getting everyone to place their mobile phones in a bucket of water as a mindfulness training.... ;)

    Sounds good :)

    Not sure I am even qualified to learn . . . in fact not even sure 'I am' . . . oh the humanity . . .

    One of my favourite books which I have read many times is 'Learning How to Learn' by Idries Shah. I even had to do an experimental course at the Open University 'How to think', which I barely passed, mostly because I think too far out of the box . . . right into the wrestling ring :3

    However I have been an IT teacher of adults and mostly that involved developing people's capacity to think for themselves rather being automatons.

    . . . and now back to the Unique Buddhas . . .
