"Going Beyond Words"

It is essential to use words in order to communicate the teaching in the human realm. But somehow we must go beyond just pasting words together when we apply various methods even if the associated words reflect a perfectly clear understanding and explanation. Ultimately we find there is no verbal designation to stand upon. That is the subject and experience of our course.
