I would wish this basic yet pithy teaching, admirably clarified, could become widely available, just as Rinpoche gives it here, perhaps in Tricycle's Wisdom Collection? Or Rinpoche's Web site or even You Tube?
In any case, I'm grateful to have received it.

Lovely message about the child heart & adult mind - care & right understanding around trauma. Liked the 'real but not true' mantra - acknowledgement of what's occurring or has occurred coupled with the recognition we can choose not to be defined by events & our reactions. And then finally a little gem on being wary of cozy dharma. Thank you tsoknyi

lovely talk; the concept of "mere I" and "social I" was new to me, but described the modern dilemma and my own suffering and craving so beautifully. worth the festival pass all by itself.

While he was talking, I keep thinking to myself 'what a sweetie pie'! I'm a southern girl, so that is the way my mind works. I experienced him as being so real. So authentic. So genuine. Thank you for giving us this opportunity to learn from such a wonderful teacher.
