Some minds might be confused by the teachings and practice of yoga and/or buddhism, as the minds might be misinterpreting the observation of dispassion, renunciation, seclusion, solitude, mental and emotional independence as a form of 'anti-community', while misinterpreting the teachings and realization of selflessness, oneness or non-separateness as a form of 'anti-individualism'.
The teachings and practice of yoga and/or buddhism is nothing to do with either 'anti-community'/'pro-individualism' or 'anti-individualism'/'pro-community'.
Both ideas, values and practice of 'anti-community'/'pro-individualism' and 'anti-individualism'/'pro-community' are the by-products deriving from the idea of 'I', ignorance, egoism, impurities and restlessness.
The minds that are under the influence of the idea of 'I', ignorance, egoism, impurities and restlessness would think and believe that all and everyone must choose to adopt either one of these ideas, values and practice to be what they are and to live life, where they cannot go beyond such duality, where they cannot comprehend that both these ideas, values and practice can either be existing together without any contradiction, or don't even need to be existing at all, where none need to adopt any of these ideas, values and practice to be what they are and to live life, as they are, where one can be embracing a community way of living, or embracing a solitude secluded way of living, or embracing and balancing both way of living, or embracing any other ways of living, as there is neither right nor wrong, neither good nor bad, neither meaningful nor meaningless in the many different ways of living under different desires or preferences.
The teachings and practice of yoga and/or buddhism is about freeing the mind from the idea of 'I', ignorance, egoism, impurities and restlessness, so that the mind can have correct understanding and unconditional peace and harmony, regardless of what way of living that oneself prefers, desires, and is embracing, while being non-interfering towards all the others who are having their own many other different ways of living in the world of diversities, respecting all and everyone has their own freedom towards what they want to be, how they are, how they want to live their life in certain way that they prefer and desire, that they are embracing and feel most comfortable with.
The realization of selflessness, oneness, or non-separateness upon the annihilation of the idea of 'I', ignorance, egoism, impurities and restlessness, void of egoism of attachment and identification towards all kinds of names and forms, being free from any individual or group identification with any quality of names and forms as 'I' or 'us', enabling the mind to respect all and everyone in the world of many diversities to be what they are, as they are. Where the mind doesn't interfere with all and everyone being what they are, as they are, nor trying to control, change, influence, convert, threaten or force others to be or not to be in certain way. It's nothing to do with 'anti-individualism'.
The observation and practice of dispassion, renunciation, seclusion, solitude, mental and emotional independence, is highly essential for the minds that have intense yearning for liberation, to be liberated from ignorance and the suffering deriving from ignorance, to be initiating the mind purification process, to purified the intellectual reasoning power, to be free from the influence of worldly passionate egoistic ideas, beliefs, values and practice to be reasoning and inquiring towards the truth of everything, to be eradicating the idea of 'I', ignorance, egoism, impurities and restlessness efficiently, to be attaining direct realization towards the truth of selflessness and impermanence, to attain correct understanding (the annihilation of the veil of ignorance) and realize unconditional peace. It's nothing to do with 'anti-community'.
The teachings and practice of yoga and/or buddhism are existing here for the minds whether to come in contact with, or not; to be interested, or not; to be picking up and practicing, or not; to inquire and realize, or not; and to be free, or not.
Regardless of all the different kinds of diversities of many different qualities of names and forms that all and everyone has or is identifying with, all and everyone is selfless and impermanent.
Selflessness, without a permanent independent infinite individual existence of 'I' existing in all and everyone and everything, of all kinds of names and forms, it doesn't mean that there is no selfless impermanent inter-dependent individual mortal existence of each and everyone that comes with their own respective selfless physical body with the selfless perceptive cognitive intellectual emotional thinking and acting faculty, where each and everyone has their own particular personal perception and non-perception of what they come or don't come in contact with/experience or don't experience/perceive or don't perceive/know or don't know, thinking and not thinking, believing and disbelieving, understanding and non-understanding, desire and don't desire, likes and dislikes, agreements and disagreements, and the limited freewill or freedom of decision and choice making, where all intentional or unintentional behaviors, actions and reactions give rise to the consequences of behaviors, actions and reactions, respectively, where the past cannot be undone, or the cause cannot be made disappear, while the process of cause coming into effect in the present moment can be modified or changed up to a certain extend depending on the availability or non-availability of the supportive elements, or how the mind is being conditioned or influenced to think and behave, act and react towards everything can be modified, purified, or disciplined under the presence of awareness, freewill, desire and effort of the mind itself.
Selflessness, where there's no existence of a permanent independent infinite existence of 'I' in the selfless impermanent physical body and mind to be under going selfless impermanent changes as well as to be responsible for the actions and the consequences of actions, it doesn't mean that the selfless physical body with the selfless thinking and acting mind doesn't exist, or doesn't go through selfless impermanent changes, or doesn't be responsible for the actions and the consequences of actions coming from this selfless thinking and acting mind via the selfless organs of action and expression/speech of the selfless physical body.
All kinds of human's suffering of unnecessary man made restriction, non-freedom, oppression, conflict, invasion, interference, discrimination, separateness, anger, hatred, resentment, vengeance, bully and violence are deriving from the presence of the idea of 'I', ignorance, egoism, impurities and restlessness in the selfless minds, that give rise to the sense of separateness, discrimination, selfishness, possessiveness, protectiveness, fear, greed, control, interference, pride, superiority, authority, offensiveness, defensiveness, dissatisfaction, disturbance, annoyance, anger and hatred, that give rise to all those unnecessary suffering in the world of many diversities.
All these hurtful destructive elements are not caused by the ideas, values and practice of community or individualism. It's deriving from the presence of the idea of 'I', ignorance, egoism, impurities and restlessness in the selfless minds.
Introducing more and more restrictions on restricting human's freedom of existence, living, moving, surviving, being, expression, thinking, belief, behavior, action and reaction doesn't lead to the vanish of all those hurtful destructive elements in the selfless minds, or doesn't lead to more peace and harmony in the world of many diversities, but only inflicts or triggers more and more unrest and disharmony, dissatisfaction and desperation in all minds, because of the suffering deriving from the lack of freedom or being restricted for being what all and everyone is, for being different from one another, for being where and how they are, or just for being able to survive and live momentarily in this world that doesn't belong to anyone.
The mind that has peace and harmony in itself, void of the idea of 'I', ignorance, egoism, impurities and restlessness, will not be thinking, behaving, acting and reacting in the hurtful destructive way that hurt itself and others and the surrounding environment, naturally. It doesn't need to be 'controlled' or 'regulated' by some others to think, behave, act and react in certain way or not in certain way. It just needed to be free from ignorance and have correct understanding, via its own awareness, desire and freewill, self-discipline and self-effort, self-inquiry and self-realization, that leads to unconditional peace and harmony in itself, that contributes to world peace and harmony and respect among the many diversities.
The only way to have peace and harmony among the many diversities of many different minds of different names and forms, is the annihilation of the idea of 'I', ignorance, egoism, impurities and restlessness in oneself, by oneself.
Inquire the truth of everything.
