Thanks, Sid. I always thought Buddism centered on cerebral passivity.
Hi CJ: I say it differently. "Passivity" has entirely the wrong feel. Buddhism centers on the elimination of suffering & creating a good life for all beings. The meditation creates a steady, active brain using all 6 major neural centers in balanc
I have read Buddhist monks are hated because they allow people to suffer around them without helping, because they believe karma is responsible for one's travails and they don't want to interfere with an individual's discipline...rape, hunger.
And I know a Buddhist monk, Thich Nhat Hanh, who saved a million lives by going to sea to pull drowning Vietnamese out of the ocean and convincing Thailand, Australia, and the US to open borders to refugees at the end of the Vietnam War.

This should only happen if you are absorbing conflicting information or information which conflicts with your already perceived values and beliefs (cognitive dissonance). This can be resolved by absorbing more accurate information.
