- I had to work hard to find much critical about Pema Codron. This guy is actually a true philosopher playing an intellectual game of three dimensional chess explaining why...in his own words: People want to be spiritual and Buddhist bodhisattva ethics are a very spiritual way of being. It suffers, however, from very serious problems. Rather than believing in no self ethics, people who want to be spiritual and also do something in the modern world should practice one body many selves ethics. (Pema Chodron would say I don't care......it feels good to believe in no self ethics... works for me!)
- This girl is also critical, but not any where near as interesting.
