33 Degrees

No that's not the name of the newest boy band; it's the perfect temperature for practicing the Dharma. It's the point right before freezing; one degree lower and the teachings that are meant to point the way to awakening, harden like cement. Frozen Dharma, in the form of concepts and doctrine, bind rather than liberate, divide rather than unite. The Buddhadharma is meant to be lived not simply thought. Keep your practice cool and fresh, not frozen and rigid.
