At the Tricycle's blog today, there is a post about how most Buddhists don't meditate. I always knew that western style Buddhism was differently practiced than any other culture's interpretation of Buddhism. It makes sense: westerners have incorporated Buddhism into our culture as best as we could, as we do/did any other religion/philosophy/practice.
But I was surprised to read that making meditation of the central tenets of Buddhism practice is a very western thing - not an eastern one.
I guess, I still have a whole heck of a lot to learn.
I sit maybe once a week, and I don't think that makes or break my Buddhist-ness. But it's interesting to know I'm not the only one in the world who practices Buddhism without being married to daily sitting.
I suppose, in some ways, it's like Christians who don't generally pray?
