: As far as i can gather, the terevada Buddhist school was for the Shanga only. Consently, I have had trouble practicing the traditional teaching and holding a job at the same time, prqacticing awareness when I should have been working and trying to hold a job. Is there any form of Buddhism for householders. Thanks, doug
Tony is right. Householers can also be enlightened
by consciously following the Dharma and attending
some teachings by Dharma masters or teachers.
Most important, please do not stop at Theravada
teachings. There are a lot of to be learned in Mahayana. And most could be gain in Vajrayana.
There are many books on both Mahayana and Vajrayana teachings.
If you need more information, please email me.
yours in the Dharma,
