    So, you go down to your favorite ice cream place to get some of them bodacious scoops. But: when you get there it turns out the place was shut down by the health departments. Something to do with "rat droppings" apparently. You're hella bummed now, because you were really looking forward to that ice cream. You even tweet about it. Etc.   In fact, Buddhist jokes can help us have a better understanding about Buddhism. 1. A Zen master told me, “Do the opposite of what I tell you.” So I didn’t. 2. Says the Master to his pupil: “Do you understand that you don’t really exist?” Upon which the pupil replies: “To whom are you telling that?” /10().

      So, meditation is central to the Buddhist path. Other religions contain contemplative ideas, but generally don’t have contemplative practice at the center. It’s about this practice, not about institutions or authority figures. 2) There is no Buddhist God. Some people don’t /10(3). Description of the book "What Makes You Not a Buddhist": So you think you're a Buddhist? Think again. Tibetan Buddhist master Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse, one of the most creative and innovative lamas teaching today, throws down the gauntlet to the Buddhist world, challenging common misconceptions, stereotypes, and fantasies.
