” In Buddhism, we gain a type of experiential acquired knowledge that grows in our hearts through what we call ‘practice’. We use the word ‘practice’in Buddhism much more that we use the word ‘belief’ We don’t say to each other: ‘ How’s your belief going?’ Instead, we ask, ‘Hows your practice going?’ Its a different way of learning.”
Ajahn Viradhammo, The Contemplatives Craft
