@Flophouse_Sam I am not familiar with that system. You might be interested in Michael W. Taft’s interviews with Culadasa on his Deconstructing Yourself podcast.
@BhikkhuBeckett @anatta Just saw this on reddit... Not that one can necessarily draw meaningful conclusions from it, buuut... Blurg! https://www.reddit.com/r/TheMindIlluminated/comments/csow9f/important_message_from_the_dharma_treasure_board/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share
@Flophouse_Sam @BhikkhuBeckett ugh, yeah that is not a good look. I find it best to dedicate myself to teachings over the personalities themselves. I remember how disappointed I was with how Noah Levine handled his controversy. We as a community have to stop elevating normal people to this higher unrealistic standard of spiritually, morality, etc. It just hurts us more when we are reminded they are still human and suffer from human failings.
@BhikkhuBeckett @anatta Sounds positive. Guru Culture is a problem. Out of interest: Does his system contain metta practice? Does he talk about love or compassion? Or is it all focus, technique and phenomenology? I'll be getting the book at the end of the month anyway. I'm sure it has value when considered in conjunction with the other precepts (right view, intention and action). I guess geeking out about stream entry can only take you so far! :-)
