This is Michael and I made some comments on air regarding belief vs practice. One response to my input was that meditation is a very small part of Buddhism. This shows that the commentator does not have direct experience with the tradition. In Buddhism, study, reflection, and meditation are all important but meditation is where the study(knowledge) is integrated. To embody the teachings, I have to go beyond intellectual knowledge. If what I know is simply a belief - without applying that knowledge in practice - then I risk separating myself from others and developing religious intolerance.
