Very interesting. I'll watch that again as there's an awful lot to digest in that hour video.

Thanx for the posting. :anjali:

Remember that a thought is only the fleeting conjunction of myriad factors and circumstances. It does not exist by itself. When a thought arises, recognize its empty nature. It will immediately loose its power to elicit the next thought. And the chain of delusion will be broken. ~~Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
