Will it be Saturday 17th or Sunday 18th ? Will it be streamed ?
Thx
It will be streamed, and it looks like the 18th, my bad.
Do you know which service will stream it yet?
No, we have not set up those details as of yet. Will keep you posted.

Hello to Malcolm and all,

I was wondering if one will be able to read this book if they do not have direct introduction? The person in question is very religious but belongs to a different faith. If they are not interested in receiving DI then what can I do to secure their liberation permanently?

I "attended" the Lung with Tulku Dakpa Rinpoche via webcast in September....I finally started reading it today for the first time...

Thank you Malcolm :heart:

My personal opinion is to secure liberation for yourself first and leave other people to choose their own religious worldview without persuasion or mediation.

Relevant to the last part of Strive's post. Did you want to reply to it by yourself or something?

If they have eyes and understand English then of course they can read it, but it won't mean much to them and it may not be all that helpful.

I find that torturing people into converting really works well. :twisted: But seriously: being a living example of the teaching is the best method. Basically that means that you have to practice your ass off.

Handful of people in this world can lead another to liberation, fewer of those teach, and no one can secure liberation for another. So moot question anyway. The faster folks come to terms with this the better. :stirthepot:

Will there be an online broadcast of this event? I would be interested if that were possible and would still be happy to pay the donation fee. Thank you!

I cannot promise anything, but if you attended the online lung, then I think I can make the recordings available.

If I ask a Lama to give me the Lung for this book, how much time would he need for it?

I would be most interested in this, if it's possible to arrange. I'd treat it the same way as attending in person by way of offering the suggested donation fee. Of course I would really like to attend in person but I don't think that's possible.

Very happy to see this happen either way! :)
