"For a disciple who has conviction in the Teacher's message & lives to penetrate it, what accords with the Dhamma is this:
'The Blessed One is the Teacher, I am a disciple. He is the one who knows, not I." -

Hi Blackbird!

Thanks for this great post, its quite informative! I guess this might be what the Buddha hinted at when he said the teachings will be 'lost' in 500 years!

Thanks again
Metta,
