yes, Brad Warner - I've got his hardcore zen, and it's too bad he spends time talking about this 'word' that people wage wars over, but then again, maybe his explanation will resonate enough that such a question will come up less often.

thanks, tom

judih,

Yeah. I think the way he approaches atheim and religion-waring - in the video, anyway - tends toward reducing the tensions and controveries rather than escalating things.

I've gone back and forth in my 'feel' for Brad over the years. Right now, I'm a fan, again. I think that may in part be because he's become a little more mature. But more likely it is, in part, that *I* have gotten a wee bit more mature.
