Who's Really being Tested?

Anything new could be exciting, perhaps even scary. When anticipating a visit to a temple one might be frightened of transgressing etiquette and offending the monks. But just as Han Solo corrected Finn, in "The Force Awakens," with the words, “The Force doesn’t work like that!” likewise when we attend a temple: good hearted and considerate; it is not our knowledge of etiquette that is being tested as much as the monks’ tolerance, flexibility, and joy. For if those monks have neither wisdom nor love, then what have they, to teach us?

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.
