My advice is just usually my mom's good advice recycled. I feel more comfortable just redispensing her advice because I know it came from her Grandma. I know it's been tested, it's got deep legs.

Everyday Zen for Transformation
There is no doubt in my mind that Buddhism is a religion. It has rituals, traditions, schools, and hierarchical structures.
