The mission of Buddhist practitioners is to inspire —and show by example that it is possible to create— another way of life, free from ordinary pettiness, free from mental rigidity, in full awareness… but, in spite of our diligence, it seems attempts to fulfil such a mission are not totally free from mistakes along the way!

Causal chains are context-dependent (planting a seed will give rise to a plant only in the presence of water and light), and it seems a small adjustment somewhere wasn't quite in tune with the surrounding circumstances and conditions. Unpleasant consequence: a link is broken.

Sorry about that! Maybe you can let us know how you got here (at contact @ dharma.direct) and we'll do our best to respond constructively?
