As a monk, I bring a strong commitment, along with the renunciate flavor, to the classic Buddhist teachings. I play with ideas, with humor and a current way of expressing the teachings, but I don't dilute them.

Meditation is often approached from the standpoint of a person who ‘does’ the meditating. This self view is not a position that will give rise to calm or release – it’s the condition we want to be released from. Meditation can be used to change the ways we attend that form the separate self. Eventually the steadiness of mindfulness, rather than the ‘I am’ sense’, can become the orientation.
