“I hope, Anuruddha, that you are all living in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.” (MN 31)

What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)

"If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 50 years ago, a liberal 25 years ago and a racist today." (Thomas Sowell)

This is an interesting thread. What follows are teachers with whom I have directly studied or whose works and teachings were a direct influence on me, and to whom I owe much and for whom I feel a great gratitude. No particular order.

Trungpa Rinpoche was a formative influence on me too Tilt , as was Khantipalo, and Chime Rinpoche still is.
