the lesson is still the same, if you want to explore zen or similar things: do it on your own or find a book about it.

Chris, I know you are on to a very important distinction. I read a lot of Buddhist material even as I find the Buddhists I know to be as attached to dogma and ritual as anyone who puts their faith in an ancient wise one.

Thank you Ruth. I will share it with  Atheist Buddhists.
