Any Buddhists here?
The Lisa Simpson episode was on tonite here in Aus, good laugh, love the Flanders response.
Oh, the irony! Buddha must be crying somewhere if he knew of this.
Really? Why do you say this?
Because his teaching is about disconnecting from the attachment to thinking so that one can see what you really are, the consciousness in which thought arises. When that happens, and you abide consciously in what you are, enlightenment is revealed and you are freed from the mind.
