I must preface with my genuine respect and appreciation for your blog and its well written and thoughtful pieces. I stumbled on your blog sometime ago and occasionally visit and read. I have a fairly good grasp of what you are speaking about in general. However, I do take issue and disagree with your thoughts and conclusions per western/christian religion and what you say .."Belief in God, obedience to his commandments, cannot give one right vision nor does moral behavior."

Just as koan can lead one to liberation, so to the discipline directed by commandments, etc, can as well. Like a koan it is not easily understood or experienced immediately, but with discipline the revelations of wisdom and truth also can and do become known and made apparent. Thank you for your efforts and labors.
