Aha, I know Scottsdale, was at Orme for a summer, the desert is incredible. Must be wonderful to meditate there...I love the quiet myself, unfortunately in the video the pinky character never stopped.

Nagarjuna!
Hence Nagarjuna writes: "There is nothing whatever which differentiates samsara from nirvana; and there is nothing whatever which differentiates nirvana from samsara. The extreme limit of nirvana is also the extreme limit of samsara; there is not the slightest bit of difference between these two" (M 25: 19-20

Seems like the long way round. Why take the long way round unless he was trying to avoid something.

Beautiful, thank you!
I live in the Mojave desert northeast from the city of Mojave in a place called California City. I can see the Sierras from my back yard.
The Desert does have its great beauty and solitude...
Best Wishes! di
