I love my parents, but for some reason they do not understand my teaching and misinterpret what I say and won't listen to me. Their misinterpretations led them to take all of my books on Buddhism I was studying as well as prevent me from meditation whenever I try or try to be mindful of doing anything, they prevent me from having to do with the Buddha's teachings (However, I can still do online things in secret as you can see). They say that when I leave the house or grow to a sufficient age, then I can resume, but for now, they have the right to take away my religion basically and it is really putting a hard toll on my spiritual growth and practice for purity. They hope it will fade away, but I have used the Dhamma as my practice for two years now and I have grown to know its truth, unlike my parents.
Does anyone have any recommendations on what I should do? Are there any ways I can continue the practice even though my parents work effortlessly for me not to do so? How can I work to show metta to them when I want to but get frustrations when they push away my teachings or speak as if Buddhism is a "cult" that makes me anti-social and a bad person, even though I have explained all of it to them?
Please help! Metta!
