    Truth be told, you have a very strong Burmese accent and use a lot of Burmese words. Native English speakers won’t understand what you are saying if you don’t explain well these words. In addition, as a Dharmma learner, the way to get Nirvana is THE FOUR NOBLE TRUTHS which is the essence of Buddhism. Another thing that I wanna argue is that Buddhism is not a religion. If you study more deeply, you will realize that Buddhism is just teaching Dharmma. Consequently, I personally don’t assume myself as a Buddhist. I assume myself as a Dharmma learner.

    Dear Philip
    I agree with you everything you had mentioned. First of all, I admit that my English is not satisfactory for some people. I know it. For me, I have to say something about what I know in English. I have no way out. So, I used English to express my feelings and my knowledge. But, slowly and gradually I realized that my English has improved. Though it is not satisfactory for me, whatever may be, but as you know I have to write or I have to say what I know in English. And I also agree with you that you mentioned the four noble truths is the essence of Buddhism. I accept and agree with your idea; there may be slight differences in some interpretational meaning. Sometimes I give definitions like this that knowledge can be divided into two parts i.e. namely “Knowledge about facts and knowledge about the logical relation between facts”. For example, in Buddhism, knowledge about facts means “suffering, the cause of suffering, the cessation of suffering and the cause of the cessation of suffering”. These four kinds concern the knowledge about facts. The other one is the knowledge about the logical relation between facts mean “the suffering and the cause of suffering”, they are logically related and connected. So also cessation and the cause of cessation are also logically related. In such relation, I emphasize the knowledge about the knowledge about logical relation between facts. Whatever may be I accept and also agree with you that the four noble truths is the essence of Buddhism. I don’t have any problem to agree with you. But, among the four noble truths, the realization of changing is the essence and also the main key point. So, in most of my interpretations I discuss changing and not reliable and they are non-significant. Sometimes I want to declare that I want to throw all kinds of feelings and sensations because they are just themselves and not mine, just the results of the interaction between the natural phenomena. So sometimes I try to be apart from these sensations or sentimental value of feelings because they are the nature of mind and body and the result of the individual and environmental factors. In these cases, I can’t explain in details you might realize what I mean because you have certain my style of writing English. I appreciate your idea and I give comment on them as rather philosophical. I appreciate philosophical ideas and philosophization. So everything what you have mentioned and what you have written I agree. That’s why I said there is no reason to disagree with everything what you have mentioned. OK. Thank you.

    Best Regards,
    Dr Chit Nge
