Buddhism has to be a corrosive path

Buddhism has to be a corrosive path

Buddhism is like a, Buddhism has always been and should always be, it should be, must be actually, it has to be a corrosive path. It has to rust itself. It has to cancel itself. Path must cancel itself. When the path is canceling itself, then this Buddhist path is good. But that’s difficult. Because many times the paths are very intricate and the workmanship is so good. So it is a very fine product. It is like just, like really, the workmanship, the finishing, the quality is so good. And the temptation to keep it as a souvenir, temptation to belong to and wear it and show off to others, so strong. But that is our challenge.
