Everyone’s a Bad Meditator, It Seems

Despite all our efforts to overcome our name, we can’t seem to help being a really good Buddhist magazine. The letters of appreciation for Ted Weinstein’s “Ways I Have Been a Bad Meditator” keep coming in.

Carolyn Haun writes:
Thank you Mr Weinstein,you have my eternal regard and affection.

Glenn writes:
Thanks for this; oH boy did I recognise; and of course you’ve got it apart from noting how you judge yourself, or those notions.

Janet Zahn writes:
I have read this over and over, and enjoyed it in the moment each time.
If I could have a nickle for all the items on that list I also have done…..well, let’s just say I could buy something.
