There was an article in Tricycle magazine that had some strange implications. People were quoting certain sections of it all over Facebook, etc. I was thinking about posting on it but Rev. Danny Fisher has written something that covers many of the points I was considering making. So maybe read what he wrote:
Those of us who teach dharma have got to “check our privilege,” as they say — which is, I suppose, ultimately what this whole post has been about. We preach to only our own privilege bubbles at the risk of making Buddhism’s messages of loving-kindness, compassion, empathetic joy, and equanimity practically meaningless. When we teach this way, we’re effectively telling those who aren’t like us, “This isn’t for you. Better luck next time.” How awful.
