    Get away from the NKT… I have had horrible experiences with them along with many of my friends. They all dont act true to Buddhism..

    You have not attained oneness, you haven’t the look of one who has. You also have not taken acid. You strong dose. Then and only then will you understand the deterioration of the material world, and to relearn who you are in this world. Amateur.
    It takes forever to do it manually.

    Hello venerable monk. Thank you for answering this question. I myself have taken vows in a Mayahana tradition which I knew very little about, and was not ready to take the precepts. You are right about some of them being seemingly impossible. For me, ‘becoming enlightened as fast as possible or realizing your enlightened state’ is seemingly impossible. I often worry about precepts I have broken as vows. I feel like disregarding them and taking the Theravadin approach.
