At the end he said something about 'libido' and some Tibetan which I didn't quite catch. Did anyone hear what he said?

Were it not for the hours and hours of teachings I've listened to from him, I would never have had the correct understanding necessary to formally take refuge--in fact I would have thought the Vajrayana was a terrifying, moralistic, ego-cult system. Were it not for his ability to blend into and converse with Westerners, and especially us young people, I would never have felt that Tibetan teachers could comprehend my values, hang-ups, OR my virtues!
I feel so blessed that he is alive. One of my biggest hang ups these days is feeling this sort of competitiveness with his many many many admirers and thousands worldwide who want to be in his presence--like I will never even be able to get five minutes of his attention.
On finishing that sentence, one of those tiny (almost invisible) red bugs began crawling over my keyboard: relatively, I've got it pretty good.
