Buddhism says that attachment is bad and should be avoided.  As I understand it (and I may well be wrong, in which case, I'd like to know more!) there's a certain anti-this-world aspect to it.

FlameKeeping is VERY specifically this-world.  There is no goal of getting off the reincarnation wheel or discarding karmic attachments or anything like that.  There is this world and it is GOOD.  We are individuals and it is GOOD.  We are part of a greater whole, yes, and that's important - but we're also individuals and that's important too.

I hope this makes sense.  If not, please, ask more questions.  I like questions. Smiley

Ah, just the aspects of Buddhism I disagree with!

Also, I don't know if it's my comp or connection, but I cannot get ANY of the pages from the Table of Contents to work. Blargh.  Huh
