Funny how that worked out, hm?
Yeah, it was actually kind of crazy.
I was supposed to go up to Austin to see this Geshe the weekend before; but I was too lazy & stupid to go check it out.
In fact; I was lamenting the fact that I would ever get the opportunity to get up there on a regular basis - Austin's about an hour and a half drive.
Funny enough, it turned out he wasn't even in the country at that time.
So last weekend, I go to Lam Rim class on Saturday and find out this Medicine Buddha empowerment is going on with that monk (who had just come back from Mexico) on Sunday in Austin.
Didn't think I could go, or at least be on time, because my wife was working and I had the kid.
Wife ended up getting off work early Sunday, which allowed me to go.
It was an amazing experience.
My mind was blown.
Realizing more and more that it's the Gelugpa/FPMT stuff that really gets me going.
