thats exactly it---building a muscle-a spiritual muscle. 3 month retreats are
definitely the way to go if youre serious. in korea it is said that theres 40
real practice monasteries in the country---deadly serious places. the smmer
retreat is 3 months every day no break. winter retreat the same 3 months
get up about 3am and theres at least 12hrs of sitting and walking mandatory
practice wiyh a bit of chanting also. ive done 5 of those retreats. its the very
best thing you can do with your life
but even 1hr practice is good---much better than nothing
