THE MERE BUDDHIST VISION
We aspire to learn, teach and practise mere Dharma, or "non-religious Buddhism,"
that is, Buddhism as simply as possible,
so that it is open to all those who seek true stillness and liberating wisdom.
We aspire to joyfully proclaim the possibility and necessity of gaining spiritual liberation
in this life itself (at lease as a streamwinner, with or without dhyana),
in keeping with the teachings of the Okkanti Samyutta (S 25).
Mere Buddhism is easy: live it and be free.
