- The Customs of the Noble Ones, an essay by Thanissaro Bhikkhu
A popular theory today maintains that the Buddha's teachings have survived all these years thanks to Buddhism's ability to adapt to the customs of whatever culture it finds itself at a particular moment in history. The history of the Thai forest Kammatthana tradition, however, stands in stark opposition to this notion. In fact, as the author argues in this essay, history suggests that the Dhamma truly survives only where people have been willing to adapt their own customs and habits so as to meet the Dhamma face-to-face, "on its own terms," in the wilderness.
