The member didn't ask about universal methods of meditation.

The member asked about BUDDHIST methods and techniques which seems to be impossible for certain members to provide even in the Buddhist section.

It really seems like the people who hang out in the Buddhist section are more geared towards discouraging Buddhist beliefs and practices than anything else.

This thread is another perfect example as the comments and justifications clearly demonstrate.

I hope that the mod team is starting to catch on to such behavior and would start to address the situation.

What is a Buddhist belief or practice? With all the different possible answers to that question, many times conflicting with each other, who would decide what will be acceptable to be posted in this section of the forum?

Which parts do you think are conflicting with each other?

You're still on this, eh? I explained to you what he most likely meant by that, and he didn't disagree with what I said.

Try to read the thread as a whole, and not just what one person said. I'd be interested to know why you would zero in on just Jonesy.

I don't always agree with you, but this ^ ^ ^ I do for the most part.

In the meantime, we still have to attempt to smooth things over and stay on an even keel. I think Buddhism and Buddhism practices is great for maintaining that even keel.

It is nice to know someone else sees the same thing.

Also, your response to my post was dead on.

Thank you.
