Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche is talking about it in the end of this video. It happened at Rangjung Yeshe Gomde Denmark this autumn.

This is great news...he has already benefitted many sentient beings, and I rejoice that he will continue to do so, in new ways.

Sadhu! Sadhu! :twothumbsup:
"There is no such thing as the real mind. Ridding yourself of delusion: that's the real mind."
(Sheng-yen: Getting the Buddha Mind, p 73)

"Neither cultivation nor seated meditation — this is the pure Chan of Tathagata."
(Mazu Daoyi, X1321p3b23; tr. Jinhua Jia)

“Don’t rashly seek the true Buddha;
True Buddha can’t be found.
Does marvelous nature and spirit
Need tempering or refinement?
Mind is this mind carefree;
This face, the face at birth."

"To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget." –Arundhati Roy

Great! :thumbsup:
Although many individuals in this age appear to be merely indulging their worldly desires, one does not have the capacity to judge them, so it is best to train in pure vision.

I am not at all surprised. He has the air and humility of a qualified teacher anyway (and of course the knowledge). Good news. :smile:

I would endure it for myriad lifetimes
