Friends ask how I could be practicing Buddhism which advocates the perspective of "no self" after decades of being committed to a Vedic tradition, which most definitely asserts an eternal Self. My answer: "Many Rivers, all flowing into one sea." In this evening at Many Rivers, I want to explore the truth of this. Is there one sea? Do all rivers lead to the same place? Can one's path be a synthesis, or does that make it a compromise? What is the viewpoint of mystics and how does that compare with the view of traditionalists? Many questions, but not one answer.
