Whether AF, conventional Buddhism, or something else, we come to these practices seeking some kind of peace. Arguing volumes over a question like which practice leads to the better enlightenment is incredibly ironic.

To speak of dharma from some place other than the concentration and insight you've developed through practice is like openly drinking a bottle of vodka at an alcoholics anonymous meeting.
