Thanks Yudron I really enjoyed that. Got a bit teary eyed at the end when it mentioned the magnitude of the problem of disappearing languages.
In order to ensure my mind never comes under the power of the self-cherishing attitude,
I must obtain control over my own mind.
Therefore, amongst all empowerments, the empowerment that gives me control over my mind is the best,
and I have received the most profound empowerment with this teaching.

It's really professionally done, eh? Unfortunately, I can't understand a word any of them say.

Very nicely done.

I could understand only the Lhasa and Kham dialects, and one of the Kham dialects took real concentration!
