« I am a Buddhist who is critical of the present state of Buddhist practice, which is often too involved with ceremony and ritual.

The proper practice is to use our human intelligence to transform our emotions.

I am a human being, I also experience destructive emotions, but the only difference is that I use my intelligence to discriminate which of my emotions is helpful and which is harmful. I then try to restrain the harmful and increase those that are helpful and this gives me peace of mind. »
