Sitting in my comfy chair with three of my dedicated assistants.

Although the title of this blog is taken from the Pali cannon, Etena Sacca-vajjena is not intended to promote or to explain Buddhism. In the blog, I will reflect on my behavior and thoughts and actions while providing positive contributions to important discussions taking place in academia.

The title, Etena Sacca-vajjena, does signal that one of the important lenses through which I view the world is rooted in the Buddha Dhamma; particularly in the Theravada tradition. While this is my lens, my intent is not to promote or to explain Buddhism. Nor am I interested in trying to convince others to adopt my lens.
