Greetings from the Land of Enchantment: Liberation

Monday, January 30, 2006


The weekend was spent sitting at the feet of my favorite Tibetan Buddhist Teacher, Venerable Robina Courtin. She is clear, precise, funny, and genuine. And she does not suffer fools: Be plain. Be direct. Do not be content with the delusion. Be persistent. Be consistent and constant in your practice to liberate yourself and others. Be patient. Be kind with yourself and others. These, she says, are the elements of "dharma." Don't waste your time being "spiritual". It's not so complicated. It is only and always about your mind.

So, my friends, seek liberation without delay and without doubt. Study your mind and become free so that you and I can actually benefit others by our presence. This is the essence of being human.

Tonight is a fundraiser for the Liberation Prison Project--a viewing of the film Chasing Buddha. Go online to for more information or to support this amazing service. None are free until all are free.
