Thank you! When I first started sitting with a Zen sangha in New Jersey in 2006, I was also reading Bhikkhu Bodhi's compilation of Pali Canon suttas grouped by theme (name escapes me), as well as the Dhammapada. The more I studied the Southert in tradition, the more pronounced became the reductions present in so-called Western Buddhism, which is more akin, in my opinion, to a gym membership for the mind, or a wellness tool, than a transcendent path which leads to the end of birth and death. (We Westerners don't talk much about rebirth either).
