Well, I was trying to answer the question in the OP, which was (emphasis mine): "if you could ask the Buddha one question, what would it be?" So I was only answering with regard to myself because that's what was asked.Peter wrote:Jechbi wrote:The difference is that I was trying to respond to the OP by describing what would be, for me personally, the best question. I thought I made that very clear.
No not really. What you said what "I think that's the best question possible." It was this statement, making a judgement of what would be best for everybody, that prompted me to respond. If you had said "I think that's the best question possible for me based on where I'm at in my practice" or something like that then I likely would have not felt any need to respond. Even "I like this question" would have been innocuous.

Oh please, everyone know the best question is "What do you get if you multiply six by nine?"
