Ekayana Shin Dharmalog Statement of Principle

Standard

 

The Ekayana Shin Dharmalog does not condone, promote or accept any teaching (‘Buddhist’ or otherwise) that:

  • is disrespectful and intellectually dishonest when comparing one teaching to another;
  • treats anything recorded or transmitted by human agency as if it were a 100% accurate statement of absolute truth;
  • requires one to accept and adopt cultural accretions along with—and on equal footing with—essential elements;
  • requires or encourages unquestioning belief in that which a person of Dharma has not verified;
  • promotes or condones nihilism, provincialism, fundamentalism, sentimentalism, escapism, sectarianism, or extremism;
  • accepts personal gain (whether spiritual or material) as a proper motivation for persons of Dharma;
