Transparent Dharma Dialogue

There’s a growing group of people worldwide who advocate what might be described as “transparent dharma dialogue.” ┬áTransparent dharma dialogue has two characteristics:

  1. A willingness to speak openly and frankly about anything and everything one personally experiences in the course of practice, and
  2. a willingness to question the standard formulations of historical Buddhism.

I think that this is a very good trend but I also think that it is best carried out from a place of lightness and humor (and, therefore, by implication, a place of genuine humility).

Among bloggers in this field, my friend ~C4Chaos provides a great example of the lightness and humor criterion. If you want to have some fun, check out his latest:
