Perhaps Buddhism is seeing red in watermelon and learn red in ownself , learning nature of watermelon by our knowledge to discover ownselves , by awareness to realize ownselves ........."to know" is to discover ownselves not to gain knowledge to create more self .....................perhaps Buddhism is to discover the desire to eat watermelon , the emotion of eating watermelon .....anyway is all part of Buddhism .

vertical line You noticed the face of Master Pohwa? It is always vibrant and smiling. Look at the students with him their faces are so rigid. The students are too heavy with their knowledge while Master Pohwa understands. Thats what understanding gives you - always vibrant. Knowledge makes you rigid and serious and cannot even smile...lol
