Hi folks, I have been reading this thread and there are many interesting links for people just starting to learn about Buddhism. Thanks for posting them. My first question about these resources is a very general one. I asked a little about dogma in an earlier post, but I am still trying to understand it with respect to Buddhism. Would you say that the Eightfold Path and Noble Truths are dogmatic principles ? Also, I we discussed the idea of dogma in the quantum mechanics thread: So SG indicated that dogma would be challenged by Zen practice. Can you give me an example how that challenge would manifest ? Thanks.
