Very good...I sat here and listened to it twice. Thank you for sharing. Also, I just started reading my copy of Buddhadharma, and believe there was a write up by you in it. The article was titled Going It Alone and there were several contributors...was that you???

@TM - I have listened it a few times as well. Such great and simple wisdom. As for Buddhadharma -- yeah that was me. I'm honored that they printed my humble offering.

Possibly due to my religious background form which I am recovering but I was unable to actual hear what was being said as I felt the delivery was not unlike a good deal of television evangelists!
Sorry I don't mean to offend just the delivery was very much un-Buddhist like....I am new to all this.

@Tullik - I'm not offended in the least. I understand not being able to hear it as much. I had trouble too but I think putting on head phones might amplify it a bit more.

He certainly is very passionate but I didn't get the impression that he was being a demagogue.

Despite Hollywood depictions, not all monks are always serene and soft spoken ;) Sometimes they do get a bit animated but overall they're pretty peaceful people.

Plus, something to think about...peaceful doesn't always mean docile.
