The Zennist: Killing the inner voice


culture provides its young inhabitants with a large supply of the three poisons consisting of moha (delusion, dullness, ignorance), dvesha (hatred, aversion), and lobha (greed, lust).  This generally comes in the socially acceptable forms of public education, the military/police, and consumerism.

And those of us who, since adolescence, think there’s more to life than money and the crap it buys are cast out, unable to network our way into the “right” group. You know: the ones who, by their mid-40s, get together to talk about toilet seats, the price of real estate and the color of their kid’s vomit.
