I am using this site to post notes, diagrams, charts, book reviews and more to help record my exploration of the elaborate and rich Buddhist tradition called “Vajrayāna”.
I have very superficially studied and practiced in a few Buddhist schools including Zen, Vipassanā, and Vajrayāna traditions. I have also shortly trained in Raja Yoga and I used to consider myself a Christian mystic.
I have another site called “Triangulations” where I skeptically explore religion, philosophy, medicine and psychology. But on this site I try not to post my skeptical thoughts though they inevitably sneak out. (smile) My skepticism is optimistic, open-minded, exploratory and invigorating — though the word often has negative connotations for some, it does not for me. My skepticism helps me learn and explore. But skepticism is only part of my mental habits — I also love to playfully dive head first into pleasures while skepticism naps.
I make a living by practicing modern medicine though I formerly practiced acupuncture and herbal medicine in Japan and have practice other alternative medical traditions which I no longer embrace — see Triangulations for more details. Anyway, due to my profession, I use the pen name “Sabio Lantz”. I have used it long enough now that it has become real name to me. What fun!!
I covet your feedback and am grateful to all who take time to correct and improve my understanding. May I kindly ask that all comments be kept civil and aimed at increasing knowledge, wisdom, compassion, vitality and joy.
