  The Buddha once taught the Bhikkhus about the All:

"I will teach you the All. Listen closely. What is the All? It is eye and visible object,
ear and sound, nose and scent, tongue and taste, body and feelings, mind and ideas.

Can the teaching(I mean to teach somebody) and the way be two different thing?

What are your thoughts?

vertical line Knowledge can be teach and there are accepted ways on how it could be teach .......in my current understanding , Buddhism is not something that we know , or something that we seek to know or something that we must know ....so is impossible for anyone to have any reason to teach others about Buddhism including Mr Dalai Lama ....lets debate for my greater understanding ..................

.........

With or without desire to "ignor" ? .........With or without any emotion of having intention to " practice" ? ..............for your words is logical to say all is with emotion ........and acted base on such emotions .....to me all action resulted from emotions is just part of learning process in a journey known as life ...an is never "right or wrong" , "never true or false...never good or bad ........is just lesson for self realization .

perhaps all is just part of a natural process that created by emotion . Perhaps Buddhism is not to an on emotion but realization on emotion .......

vertical line Anybody can have a lapse in consciousness. Anybody who's anybody, does. Few, I assume, connect it with enlightenment, and pursue the Way's natural course.
