Someone on a local mailing list recently posted a link to ATI about how to interact with monks, what their rules are, etc. Disappointingly, it turned out to be a whole book. Something I don't have time for. Is there a SHORT guide that just covers most things to be aware of?
In reading the scriptures, there are two kinds of mistakes:
One mistake is to cling to the literal text and miss the inner principles.
The second mistake is to recognize the principles but not apply them to your own mind, so that you waste time and just make them into causes of entanglement.
