> Tolle's simplicity is remarkably effective.
Yes! It is largely for this reason, his unadorned undramatic simplicity, that buncha Krishnamurtians and Buddhists I know denigrate Tolle, think of him as a lightweight. For me, it's pretty much the opposite. To be able to point clearly and simply and consistently to that which is, ultimately, unfathomable ... it's a great gift, and an indication to me that he truly "gets it."
Tolle is a guy you come back to when you grow weary of the strictures and rigamarole of traditional dharma teachings.
