Like an Elixir for Reviving the Dead - 13sep21

The fourteenth Dalai Lama of Tibet

does NOT enjoy all of his duties.

He is often asked to write forwards

to other people’s books.

And many of those forwards

are quite perfunctory:

“This is a dharma book,

and dharma is good,

so you should read this.”

You can imagine my surprise

when at last I came upon a text,

within whose forward the Dalai Lama can be seen

to absolutely gush.

First he lauds

“The Heart Treasure of the Enlightened Ones”

as containing

the complete path to enlightenment,

which is high praise in deed

from one raise and educated

by Tibet’s hyper-conservative Gelug sect.

Finally he waxes figurative

and describes the text as being like

an elixir for reviving the dead;

not unlike the Nightsisters of Dathomir’s

treatment of Darth Maul.

If you can NOT afford to purchase it from Amazon

contact me and I’ll send you a link

for a free PDF

of my adaptation and explanation.

Let us conclude

with a simple

call to action

In the Tibetan tradition Lamas are supported

not by monasteries but by students

as such the production of these livestreams,

blogs, and class materials is supported

by the generosity of viewers, and listeners, and readers

just like you.
