Good luck. If I'm foolish enough to mention I don't specifically care for Zen, of for Tibetan, or Nicheren, or for Mahayana in general, (and on occasion I have been) few people want to leave it at that no matter how politely I phrase it. I'll get "But don't you want to be a Buddha?" "What specifically don't you like about....?" etc.

And the more I try not to engage, the more they press. :tongue:

Again, good luck.
