been reading avatamsaka sutra for over a year, and suddenly seem to be able to breeze right through it. i always try to read thoroughly, but now it flows right into mind (earlier, i would re-read difficult passages to understand, thinking them through (if able)).
studying actually helps develop skills (even with ancient metaphysical/philosophical/psychological/religious (non-rational) texts)
