You misunderstood my meaning, Susan. How do you know I don't practice? Do you see I don't practice? I admit that I talk according to books but I also practice. Knowledge in buddhism is also needed, practice and reading should both be together. Without books but just practice is blind practice.

: : Actually we have to stand on the truth but not opinion. To know what is truth we need to practice. Without practice no one can prove it, but just read blindly from books.

: Not trying to be unkind but I don't read books, I sit and practice, perhaps you should be doing that instead of writing so much. you sound angry, why is that? Did Buddha write a book, did he read, I am referring to after he became the Buddha. Silence is golden and it is in that that you find the truth. It is great that you have great knowledge of books but there is nothing to defend here. We have all different flavors here on the site, so please respect that but the goals of all of us are in the same direction. We are not in the bowling alley here, knock one down and then knock another down. What about kindness and compassion to each of us?
