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”
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.

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.
