All your questions will be answered, and you may not have to agree with the answers. Such is the beauty of Buddhism. I follow the Theravada tradition, and have been studying Buddhism for more than 40 years. As I am not a Buddhist scholar, I answer in simple language, and I prefer answering general questions rather than textual.

I have practiced and studied Tibetan Buddhism in the Kagyu and Nyingma traditions since the early 1970s, and have a good knowledge of theory, history and of the struggles of trying to practice the teachings, including meditation, while leading a normal, modern life. I am also available to provide background information for journalists.

I'm a long-time practitioner in a Korean-style Zen school. I can answer questions regarding Zen, formal sitting meditation, self-inquiry, the practice of "koan" transmission, and offer the particular perspective of this school on the great life questions.

Primarily I can answer any questions related to meditation and Buddhist tradition in Myanmar (Burma). This includes present traditions as well as past history, and such traditions as Pa Auk, SN Goenka, Mahasi, Shwe Oo Min, etc. I can respond to technical questions on technique, questions on history and lineage, and practical questions for seekers to the Golden Land. In some cases I can compare Burmese Buddhist tradition to other Buddhist countries and the experience found in the West.

I can answer general questions about Buddhist principles. I cannot answer academic or scholarly questions. When I examined the questions that were submitted, I concluded that I would be to provide some Buddhist insights for about ninety percent of the queries. My specialty is trying to explain Buddhist concepts in ways that are easy for Westerners to comprehend. True expertise in Buddhism is enlightenment. I certainly do not have this kind of expertise. However, I have studied with monks who I consider to have great wisdom. I can try to pass along this wisdom, even though it is second-hand, to those who ask questions. It is not my goal to convert people from other religions to Buddhism. I hope that the Buddhist insights I can provide will help people to understand the value of their own religious practices. For those who are already Buddhist, I can try to help them get the most benefit out of what the Buddha taught.
