Direct Path:
1) Lacks Qualification. Direct Path does not talk about qualifications
2) Lacks Values. Direct Path does not talk about values such as how to behave morally, how to act, how to live, etc.

3) Preparation for Liberation: The goal of one’s life is to have peace of mind. Karma Yoga is a spiritual practice by which the results of one’s actions are given up. As a result, peace of mind is attained.

4) Clear distinction between experience and knowledge: Some direct path teachers explain that you need direct experience of awareness (as if we don’t experience ‘awareness’ all alone!).

5) Direct Path teachers do not discuss what makes up a good teacher. Is he or she qualified to teach? Does the Direct Path teach an impersonal teaching?
