“Many of the Buddha’s teachings were not understood or appreciated during his lifetime. I have discovered that many of his teachings have not been explored and put into practice. Some have only begun to be understood in my generation. Yet the Buddha did not suffer because of this. He said, “Many of my teachings are difficult to believe.” He was aware of this, but he had the courage to teach anyway.” ”

    When I originally posted this a little earlier today I mistakenly put the author's name as "Kahn" instead of "Hanh". Apparently you can try to be mindful and still screw things up!! I am sorry for that mistake (and will rectify it with a quote that relates on that mindfulness problem shortly).
