Accept my words only when you have examined them for yourselves;
do not accept them simply because of the reverence you have for me.
Those who only have faith in me and affection... continue...

vertical line once the buddha passes the dharma on to you, i remember saying something like "Buddha that old fool." or something and start laughing

the thing that amazes me is this, is the dharma lineage truly unbroken since the first master?or does it spring about newly each time someone is enlightened? because there is definitely a passing down or a transmission

The dharma is the same. No changes and unbroken.

Once you realized your conditioning it drops and the dharma appears.
Or  being blind all your life you begin to see.
