Avoiding Suffering? the First Noble Truth is that there IS suffering. and there is a way OUT of it. that doesn't mean not Feeling Pain, or Love, or Passion. It means not being a Victim to any of these things.

There are many different kinds of Buddhism. Tibetan Buddhism is nothing like Zen which sometimes resembles Therevada( south-east Asian). They all have meditation practices involved which are similar techniques but many different philosophies. Here in the West we have the opportunity to mix & match & take what works for each of us as individuals.

kinda like Aikido, huh?
