A Deeply Healthy Kind Of Perfectionism With Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo
"Jetson migrate to meet you. Thanks for staying up late in india to do this interview appreciate it. Thank you so really excited to talk to you. I think maybe a great place to start would be just a little background on your personal story. How did you get interested in buddhism in the first place. Well since. I was a child i had been. What shall i say asking questions i mean. I believed that we were inherently perfect. But that we had lost contact with our innate nature which was perfect so the question was what is perfection. And how do we attain it. So i asked many people i asked the priest sayas teachers. I asked my mother. I asked everybody. I could think of and they said you have to be rude. You have to be kind and even those a child. I recognize that merely being good and kind yes. Of course we have to be good. We have to be kind. But that's just the basis this perfection was something beyond all that but what was it. And how did we attain it. So i read the bible and we were supposedly high anglican. That's like a piscopo. And i also had many jewish friends and i ask them a net rabbis and i even tried reading khurram then i took yoga but none of them onset my question because all of them would dealing with the soul and its relationship to the creator and that just did not speak to me at all so i assumed i had to find my own puff them when i was eighteen. I read a very simple book on buddhism. The fall noble truths and the three signs of being and so forth and as i read it. I just knew. This is what i had always known. I just haven't known that there was actually a religion with said that. I read health book than i said to my mother. I'm a buddhist and she said. Oh that's nice dear. Then finished reading the book. Can you can tell me all about it. As i read it just was unfolding layers and layers of things which i already had known but the buddha gave a path and i was just so grateful he not only explained essentially what perfection was. You're gonna ask me. What is perfection but also. He should pass woods that. So you know i even as i read it. I recognize that. This is what i always known without knowing that i knew it. Let me pick up on. You're keen ability to read my mind. I was going to ask amd ask you. What do you mean by perfection. Because this is. I've spent a reasonable amount of time marinating in buddhism and would describe myself as buddhist for sure. Perfection is something. I haven't fully wrapped my head around and certainly in the west and you'll know this it's easy to get it. Tangled up with perfectionism strikes me as a problematic forced to say the least well essentially. I think all genuine spiritual paul's recognize that our true nature is something beyond our conceptual sort. It cannot be thought about it cannot be spoken about but it can be realized

One Thing Millennials Aren't Killing? Public Transportation
"Millennials are often blamed for killing things. You know like gulf mayonnaise vacations marriage. It's almost become a cliche. Well there is one. Many millennials and their younger counterparts in gen z save public transportation urban living concern for the environment and a lack of romanticism. About cars are some other reasons why. Npr's mvp has more. There's one word that twenty four year old michelle. Santa maria keeps using when she talks about public transit. I feel like it's so cute. it's just cute. it's so cute. i think it's cute. I mean it's clear that for her. Public transportation is about a lot more than just getting from point a to point b. santa. Maria is one of the many millennials who aren't as car crazy as their parents generation. She belongs to a facebook group called. And brace yourself. It's a mouthful. New urbanism seems for transit oriented teens. The acronym is numb tots. Which is what they call themselves. There are more than two hundred thousand members. And they share funny posts but also debate transportation policies and fantasize about a world in which nobody needs a car but the pandemic has crushed that dream across the country drop in ridership have led to budget cuts and service rollbacks which means a lot of trains and buses are coming less frequently. If at all said the honest it's infuriating in a way. William clark is also a number top. He's twenty five years old and lives in philadelphia. He worries about transit workers as well as the commuters who ride buses and subways not because they love them but because they don't have a choice because when you reduce the amount of service you have to pack more people onto your vehicles at least a higher possibility of contract code. It's actually pretty scary. He works from home now. But he's trying to support the system in other ways. He's a member of a transit. Riders union in philadelphia where he advocates for the needs of writers in the city. Who might not be able to make public meetings across the country. Twenty five year old. Alex lee is advocating for transit. In san jose california he got himself elected to the state legislature and appointed to the transportation committee. If you start putting transit then you're really hurting the people that depend on it. Most people who don't have access to cars or people who rely on these little life against soon for work and lobbies are essential workers twenty-seven-year-old tens and trump used to be one of those essential workers. He was an icu nurse until he moved to vermont in burlington mason wide. And here's the other thing. It's the middle of january. We just had a snowfall and biplane is just as clear as any road. He left in part because he feared for his life biking on the streets and the commute on the subway could take as long as three hours. So what numb tots like him. Think about the new. Us president whose nickname after all is amtrak. Joe and who's appointed a millennial people judge as transportation secretary some are hopeful but ciampo is not impressed is actually millennial. He seems ancient. Let me look at this age. I'm fairly certain that he is to get on my phone and be like. Oh dang is he we google it and it turns out buddha. Judge is thirty nine so so i guess he counters but it doesn't think like a millennial no i don't i don't think so compel thinking like a millennial means not thinking like a politician like those politicians from previous generations who promised major upgrades to public transit systems and never delivered a peasley npr

Says that we need to increase taxes to pay for Joe Biden's climate change agenda. We still don't know how how much or how that's going to be addressed. But the quote is we do need to meet the climate change challenge and we need funds for improved infrastructure, better roads, safer roads, safer bridges, which also creates jobs. That's what she told the senator Rick Scott, when he asked about transportation secretary nominee Pete Buddha judges proposal of a gas tax to raise money.

Buttigieg calls for infrastructure investment at confirmation hearing
"Gateway project gets the green light confirmation hearings have gotten underway for President Biden's pick for transportation secretary people to judge and this morning he fielded questions from senators about the nation's badly needed infrastructure projects. Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal was the first to question Buddha judge about the Gateway Project, which calls for building two new Hudson River tunnels and then taking the old tunnels out of service, one of the time for a gut renovation. Senator Blumenthal joins us now. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you, Linda. Thanks for having me Well. This project has been held up in the past over concerns about funding and approvals. Did Buddha judge indicate that those things might change? He's had a very clear sense of the urgency. These tunnels are 111 years old, and they are rapidly degrading, decrepit. And clearly in need of rebuilding and replacement. So I think he understands that the tunnels are part of a larger transportation network that's vital. To the entire Northeast as well as the whole nation. In addition to the age, as you mentioned, it's also part of the nation's busiest passenger rail car door. Well, so little Republicans asked how the federal government would pay for the billions in infrastructure. Do you expect a lot of opposition trying to get this to go forward. The Republicans raised the issue of cost, but this investment and it's an investment in our transportation, future assholes our economy. Clearly. Should be at the very top of the list of projects nationally. And I would just add that this kind of project puts people back to work. It creates construction investment in the kind of project that will last. Not just for 10 or 20 years, but literally for Generations, you know, back in 2015, Governor Cuomo and Governor Christie told the Obama administration that their states would pay for half if the federal government would foot the bill for the other 50%. Would that still be the plan? The details on spending divisions need to be worked out My step. The federal government would now take a larger share the burden given the state's current deficits, the impact of the pandemic, I would hope that the federal government will step up without imposing At 50% or 60%. Or even 40% burden on the state. One last question. We know both Senator Schumer and Governor Murphy of New Jersey have offered Buddha judge a tour of the Hudson River tunnels. Any chance he would take that up. I'm going toe press him to do it. He has a lot on his plate, as they say in his first A few weeks, but Concurrent ew. I will extend a very, very courteous but firm invitation as a member of the Commerce Committee and joining the governor's has a leading advocate. Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you, Linda

Repairing Our Hearts - Healing with the RAIN of Compassion
"Greetings friends welcome back right here now so our second almost full day together and i just wanna star really by bowing to to honor your practice. I felt so much a sense of the sincerity and that presence in space that we're creating together so it's delicious and you know especially in the midst of such a reactive spinning hurting world right now really matters that were coming together. Like this in this relative quiet missino. It's not quiet for everyone. More stillness more connecting with hearts. You know we miss. Oh much when were preoccupied on. We're speeding along on automatic. And you know just reacting to daily stressors. I received an email woman wrote to me about her four year old and she was buckling her daughter. And after you know. Typically hurried morning Two working parents baby young children to different schools. You get the picture and this is what she wrote. She said i noticed my daughter's nails or getting long. And i told her we'd have to cut them tonight and started talking about the other things that we need to happen in the evening. Taking a bath and detangling her curls and she said. Ok mom but let's care about now so i just love that because it's such a beautiful description of our practice carrying about what's here now. So this talk i will be exploring really our primary challenge to this open hearted presence this carrying about now and it happens when now is unpleasant and we have this very deep conditioning. When it's unpleasant as we know to react by pulling away by contracting and also to react by turning on ourselves especially when an emotional pain physical pain is strong and ongoing it often comes a self version and i invite you to check that out. So the title of the talk is repairing our hearts. And if we want to understand how we perpetuate disrepair suffering. We need to begin to recognize in the background of. What's going on the stories that we're telling ourselves in other words we need to see how we move from a fuelling. That's unpleasant to judging it as bad something bad's happening and then moving on even further saying something's wrong with me and it happens very quickly. You know something's wrong. Something's wrong with me and we call it. The second arrow from the buddha's teaching that the first hour is some painful experience and the second arrow. And this is what's critical. Is this slapping on of a story about what's happening. There's a pali word i love. It's papa and it's that chain of reactivity the proliferation that happens so rather than just feeling. Something's unpleasant we immediately start trying to figure it out. Push it away and blame usually and usually we blame ourselves and we ended up solidifying our identity as a flawed separate self in that chain reaction. Now i just want a name. That of course. The story about badness extends to others you know we often blame others and say you're bad and we blame life. Life's bad but deep down if there's any rejecting of the present moment were not liking ourselves. Mistrusting ourselves and in buddhist psychology any moment of resisting. What's right here. A wanting life different is suffer. It could be very subtle suffering because we're in some habitual way of distracting. Our could be very profound but either way when we want life different we cannot inhabit and live from the love and the awareness. That's our true nature. So ona tell you about a friend of mine Some of you might of heard of him. Dan gottlieb. He's a psychologist. He's an author radio host from philadelphia and i interviewed him for my podcast. When he was thirty three he had a very successful career. Family then had an accident that landed him quadriplegic chronic pain so this is almost forty years ago and at first after the accident he wrapped what was going on in many many stories. I'll a terrible life. I can't live with. This is wife died soon after more pain and it landed as a sense of personal badness pain and there's something really wrong with me and life is bad and he started realizing that his stories were what was creating the suffering

It's the same thing. There is this moment in time. Home. Yeah everybody has it great then what do you do with it again, this the cutting edge you Buddhism it's not just being present. Hold you mind like an eye in walled. Impressive now good. Well, you present all the time you know. Yes. It goes a lot further than that's not more subtle in that way. Under the same time again appreciate the efforts that you have done other people may not. Really appreciate that. Be Proud of those half. So you've done in practice in proud to yourself. You know because we worked through a law which otherwise would be acted out in the rest of our lives. So, this is this is that aspect in the mind in itself is You know you saw anew and you you are who? You are whoever you are at that point you can't be another way is complete in that way is liking the oxidizing pitches. Every single picture I circle round. And that circle is complete is complete. A cannot be another another way at this moment in time, he cannot be another way. These ingredients living. Now, so what do I do with it more and the more you see this the more you will see the wherever you stand your life is complete. It doesn't mean that you you know you don't have to do things and all that kind of thing but. It cannot be another way. This is exactly what I've gotta do work with as a human being. They also have to remember is that this is also the human. Dynamics go on especially with process you know these have to be recognized is not they shouldn't be that way. People's minds work this way you know for instance, like if I get difficult circumstances. Then people will go well, maybe I won't practice because on might end up like him. I'm. Serious. There was a guy donate stuff because he thought we really cool in the floods came. Digging things out and he took him back. He didn't think we got the. Virtue. Of practice, you will be rewarded in a way but I'm serious people look at it this way. Or difficult things happening somebody somebody die in. Some people thought the Miami row she was a bad teacher because he would get sick you know. This all kinds of things that humans bring up as excuses rod than this is what is happening now, this is exactly the would that needs to be done. You are essential. Period. Again. Don't swallow it that way to see why that is true. Why is my life the and the the life of the Buddha? Why are they the same in that way? The Buddha had plenty of. Of Tasks in his life. Is that is that nice call on where he's with Indra you know the KI the king of the Gods I don't always hanging out with God's but. He seemed to do that every now and then and there there were feel walking around and originally the Buddha just migrated from from one from one place to another as there was food and soon wooden take too much from communities near moved around until at one point they decided well. Okay. Let's. Hang out in one place, build these things that they call the horizontal. Or place of practice, and so he's walking around with Indra and an injury. He says the Buddha said. Yeah, this would be a nice place for temple. Kind of innocently and innocuously and an injured goes gets a piece of grass and being a God, he puts in the ground and goes the temple is complete. And so what did the Buddhist? The Buddha. Then.

"At all the stuff that we had to do to get that. All. Those wonders that raised thing and at the same time. The Buddha is the one who's looking through your is. The one that you've tried for so long. And an in this, I am also acknowledging the process because there is a process where we have the wear out whatever it is. That is our own. Our own barriers. Mino-. Knowledge that fact that process is important to us. And if if if we didn't those things which is run on in the back of our minds. As in many things to to look at is even evens when once thought process people think he's just about great space, but you also look at what you do with your own thought protests. The barriers that you create in that in that process of our is that I created I have to move through this this and this to get to this a very linear way of thinking. Rather. Than going don't introduce toxins. Thus, the route to that precept don't bring things in the distance yourself from yourself. That's the biggest gap between oneself and oneself. He's not between here and Antarctica. We create a FOB, know far more in our minds. We put we put in all kinds of obstacles Robin going this is this is my this is my thought process right now. And then in time seeing how that works as you begin to realize I, don't need to follow it. But until that is. You. Know that until you really see that is. This creates all kinds of emotions. Ukraine's all kinds of separation, all kinds of difficulties than we still follow those same patents and we begin to believe them. And that's the sad part. You know this is the way I am. This is what goes on. Some somebody like maybe maybe when you're at schools came, will you're stupid? I mean, that's for my era new. All kinds of things know. And if you believe that that's a problem. But. If you don't believe it and you actually carry on and you do the best that you possibly can. Then those things are not set in stone in yourself. A night goes all the way through practice. Even when people say you agree you're amazing. You have all of these things if you know you south of House Him Outta, if you grey or whatever. You still off the wisdom and virtue of the awaken one to thus miss the wisdom and virtue of your way. Want this. This is what the Buddha said the beginning. This is the basis of Buddhism. He didn't try and set a Buddhism. He just gave a fact he gave an affirmation. Now, we tend to lie affirmations nowadays books written about him and all that stuff. But yeah. Okay. Then believe it I am Buddha. That doesn't mean you are something and if on the other hand, it means that there is nothing here getting in the way right from the beginning. Hogan just says you are actual the Buddhist been wiped away in that way. The Buddha didn't eggs this two thousand, five hundred years. Bought the woods that he spoke at that time. Still encourages today I mean the power of that practice that he that he did that should never be. Barad. Is the power of his practice through forty forty, some years of practice he died. Everyday raise raising this up whether he was meditating whether. Whether it was teaching whether he's walking weather's doing any kind of activity. Was the that not losing sight of. This this wisdom of the chew, which is the very core of our lives itself. Is He, without fail? Now in this. He goes on. No one recognizes the sweating horses in the past they only want to emphasize the achievement crowning the age. So you know what is that cough? I mean look at what you've done is is a human being to to get where you on now just look at all the ethics taken. I don't want you to buy into a statement lightness either you know. But one thing is just let that shed light on why you are, and if you do allow yourself to sit in this this place and experience this, what makes you different than than a Buddha? That's what Buddha's Dong. The only thing is the undermining thought process the goes on that undermines that and Ourselves, and at some point in time I will become. The some that is the disease in itself. Again. This is what this is why concentration but is so important is not necessarily just to concentrate on something like the breathing is so that natural aspects of of who you are shines through everything else and becomes the most important thing. You, know just the breathing and The thought processes in again leading down. Of of the places? Now there's another aspect to this, which is quite often is we want something rather than nothing. So we're promised a lot of nothing. Will become the great. Great. Floyd the Great Empty Vasan n. t all of these things but baseless guests the crap out of US human beings. As one of the first things when. Studying his realized the stories that I told about myself. Never reached it. You know and then when when when I saw that basic openness and emptiness that which is the basis of of all of Levin is scare the crap out of me for for a you know a year or so until it was befriended until I, realized that that was that all the time. That was any any kind of deep realization what I'm saying was that that basis was apparent and then I didn't need to put thought over the top and less that was necessary. And then obviously as that becomes a parent that Salah easier to enter into all kinds of circumstances without the story being told well, I can only achieve this jury meditation. In rather than yet. The function. The same mind that the sits meditation is functioning and everything else. I remember when I was so in. In. A mountain center in Nineteen eighty-three.

"So then we actually build structure because five thousand dollars and still standing today. The reason I'm saying this is not to denigrate the people we do in that issue. Slight. You know I have I have talent I want to use it. Now. Free. Each one of those you know like with this what he's Buddha. Is You know if not me who if not now when This is these were the words that.

I was educated the God was in everything garden, Buddha to me and not to different things not the actual person by that that Buddha who although having? This fast an MD mind I don't mean thought process in this case. This fast and empty mine was it was there with me I would always ask these questions my mother you know he's. How come you know you say God's in everything but I can't see him. But I could feel and that stayed with me all the way through my life, there was something that I that I didn't fully appreciate. And a lot of life is has been around that. That point you know how do I really appreciate what happened to you? This divine nature the always use that. And then. Less. Few days have been looking at the Oxford in pictures and part of that is I decided to approach it seem as though it is a process of self discovery Roth than just interpreting the poems that say Kaplon. And some of the other masses including. San's name whose family contemporary contemporary eighties. Decided to write poems in my mom got into about three of them. And then started looking at that development to spirituality and how occurs and the first painting of the of the Oxygen pitches the only reason that they the young person that he's looking for his nature doesn't see. The traces of the of the ox of the ball is simply because he's not looking in bright down the traces would be on the ground in front of it. He's looking all over the place. You know. There's there's a story of. Of An of an old priest who? Loses who loses his case and He's had a few and he's and he's off is fun on this street is looking around freeze case and this guy comes up tim says Father White Way you down on your knees because I'm looking for my case goes did you draw them because I dropped him on on hope? Street. You'll. While you look in his, it's easier to see. But that is reflective of us as human beings. We look in the socal easy places somebody it's written down in these books. Okay. I believe that that's what he's doing it myself. You know. The beauty of this call on this is so direct you know the the monk. C. H. O. comes open to to Hogan? WHO'S The founder of the whole school in the Fi in school if you use. Chinese. And he says, you know he's he's test in. That's beautiful. Collins her about. Does what is Buddha? and. Hogan doesn't mess around. He's just very. Accurate. Honest. You. H. O. Show. You. Say anything about. It. Why do you need something else? Why do you need some some validation or some words from somebody else? You know we feel it in our bones right right from the beginning. I today when I was. I was preparing the talk. I was just reminded of a song was out in the ninety S. And I, asked Steph about it and she said you know his faith no more and it's called pick. Just to push the song we know. Now and it goes. Probably a bit late. Goes you want, but you can have it. It's in your face, but you can't grab it. And he goes it goes on and he describes things and it's that same thing is we want something else who wants something objective we want something to hold onto. Rather than the meat puppet that he's always functioning twenty, four seven, the one who sees these is the mountains rivers. Everything is manifested that you can't lay something over the talk of it. We can we have to talk about him one way or another because it seems natural for us to do is human beings and this socal spiritual practice is being on for at least five thousand years. You know there's there's elements of that. We went on five thousand years people spending time to look into their own nature in our own societies valued. Why are you doing that? You know why? Why is sitting and looking at looking at enable? That's my cousin. Thanks I do sit. Looking at my navel. Doesn't go beyond that. You know. I'll tell him if he ever wants to of that. That's the projection. That's what people do. It's interesting. You know in this in this particular. Case and you know this is one of the best introductions in the in the entire book it in fact, even in the including the book of Equanimity to. It goes it goes down I mean the whole thing is just packed with stuffy so good. It goes when you are independently worthy of honor. Where there is no Buddha. Only. Then you are getting some way if not, then penetrate through on the tip of a hat to release great elimination and be free an autonomous in all things, and this is important for an autonomous in all things. He doesn't mean that you'd just good when you meditate or in service or whatever. In all things. This is the challenge that the that the show is putting putting out for us thought over thousand years ago is no say in the spirituality is Is a special thing that that you know you a just a just play capable to one at wanted to things and you just you just of the people around you. You know 'cause they already have. Now these are practices you do these things over and over things are invited and that's a beautiful thing. Goes then whatever comes to hand is it so there you go back to faith no more. You know this is it. What is it? Cetera but tell me what do you attain to be so extraordinary. I mean. If you get in a and and listen to conversations of people practice they always go. To The enlightenment experiences you know and there was nothing people fall as amazing. You Know I. Wish I had that.

When the waves of the triple floodgate a high. Fish becomes dragons. Yet fool still scoop evening plumbed water. So Nice it's a nice poem. I remember when I was. Living down in Coal Mullan England. Thing. Was the year before I went trumper came came down to visit to bill picardy used to a group that we used to go to every week. and. So he he visited and You know he's wearing his monk's robes to baton. The baton robes or marine. and he came in and this this lady studied bowing to improve profusely. And non on how don't don't do that kind of thing. She continued patted her on the hat. You know. And then this the story goes on that's just part of that. So he gave, he gave a talk and bill had some pet bill pick out had some pet rabbits. And The rabbits would play all over rim shade really liked him, and then will get inside these robes and everything like that. the only the only thing is that he they actually pooped in his in his robes. As. As it came time for him to leave the got up a few of these pellets kind of fell out to these roles he has. The. Great He's just incontinent. So I. Mean I am actually addressing an Nazi address in the Cohen is. We tend to project all kinds of things onto people who are. so-called spiritually adapt. and. It's you know it's not. It's not necessarily. So this thing is respect which is great and then there are things where we. Go well, I am not a person like that. I, don't have the. You know, say the wisdom virtue of the awaken one to the snus. Or the the Buddha. And I don't have that but at some point. I will amend the disease is right there at some point. I will. What does it take? You know I'm going to illustrate it with a few stories. When it first came to Z. Cla. A there was several carpenters were kind of older than me. And they were really good side. We tend to defer to them and then one of them wanted to. Make this pencil structure, appear. which cost you know four, four, thousand dollars or so and he took us six months to May. Get Hymns based on Buckminster Fuller's twisted. Mostly parallel grams or something no. Mending of parallel bit more close. Belongs. And got all of that together. And does a beautiful structure and Only lasted a year or so he's left out in the snow and he just crushed. And that was that was the end of that. So at that point. My she was asking everybody to. To do drawings for the new Buddha Hall that was that was that was going well, you know I'm twenty, eight thirty. But then. The other part was I'm not going to let them do something so.

"Fact that the teacher is somebody of pure compassion. This is the essence of the Buddha somebody would pure compassion an infinite wisdom so to speak. And this is our teacher. Don't think that sometimes you may think Oh. Yes. Sure. His teach you. That means that he's a teacher like like a sequence of teacher going back all the way back to the Buddha but is much more than that. He's actually not trust our teacher through a sequence of teach to up until today but he's actually directly our teacher is directly our teacher because the Buddha knew when he taught his teachings that this teaching would be alive for centuries and Millennia after. The Buddha, he knew that already when he was teaching here is said that I have set in motion the wheel of Dharma and this wheel can be stopped by anyone in the world it will run according to his own impetus unto eventually, it stops to natural causes but nobody can stop this wheeler. So he knew that there was going to be people listening to the Dhamma just like here today or whenever you this particularly when you read the Buddhist sutras themselves. They're going to be people like this long long time after him. So when he taught, it did not only teach the audience around in the also talked audience future rations. So is directly our teacher. So here you are. You have the most wise. The Most Compassionate teacher has ever been. He is your teach shit directly. A think about that is powerful. Miss. Quite wonderful. and. That is what you do. When you start reeling the suitors you're coming in direct contact with that word of the Buddha he teaching you directly just as if you were there. Part of the Buddha's audience listening to his very words. It's very powerful try to use that in your meditation practice. Think like that bring up the idea that you is your teacher directly and he is the most powerful person corporatism has ever existed. See I can give you some joy and happiness. Inspire you in your practice in daily life. I can give you an extra an extra boost as a Buddhist? What even if you're not the Buddhist. Sympathetic it's still maybe something that you may find useful in a meditation practice. So that is. The talk for this evening. So. I don't know if you wish to if anybody has any questions or comments or anything you'd like to say anything that this is this is your child said. This everything said tonight is directly from the suitors. And nothing is from from anywhere else. Yeah. That's great. I mean just because something is from somewhere else it doesn't automatically mean it's wrong. You know it shouldn't take these of things too far. But what it means that it's uncertain because uncertain, I always argue the best thing do is put them to one side and it were too much about them. True. But because you don't know it's to be on the safe side is best to stick with what actually is the word of the Buddha himself that much more safe regarding this thing. So. Sometimes. Even the even the what sometimes given us the word of the Buddha. Sometimes, there are good reasons that even some of that may not actually be originally come from the word of from the Buddha himself Stephen Dairy sometimes, you have to be a little bit careful. Is Only. When you can find lots of cross-references a can find reference between different traditions, the Chinese and the pilot in the Sanskrit and so forth and you can actually. Sort of rooted back to a time very close to the Buddha. That's one can be pretty sure that actually this is the word of the Buddha but there are good reasons that certain suit does not spoken by the Buddha not least because there was not the respond by the widow, some certain spoken by disciples. Anybody else have questions please feel free to ask anything like no question is stupid. No question is too intelligent. Anything, you anything you want to. Have any complaints complaints to complain as well if you're not. There is no indication of that in the suit themselves.

"So. Okay. So we can. Two tonight's talk. The talk tonight is going to be on the. Life of the Buddha and the Buddha himself as a person. And I remember when I recently went to India of that risk than in most map almost a year ago now. And one of the things that you talk him out when you go to the talk about the life of the Buddha, because you go to the places where he wants a two thousand years ago. And it's natural. When go to those places that you focus on who the Buddha actually wants to and what you find out very quickly when you start talking about the Buddha is how little most people actually understand about who the Buddha wants, what actually data and For that reason is actually very useful. Of coming to greater understanding of the despite having a talking about this. And, I, remember it myself. I was also surprised. When I started reading in more detail in the suit does it matter who the Buddha was? I. Also had often ideas about who we actually want to. Sometimes you have to like you have to go through the discourses of the Buddha with a very fine calm. Actually realize who he wants. To gain this greater appreciation. Of the historical figure who live in two and a half thousand years ago. and. Many advantages. Over. Talking about many things many ways. This can actually enhance practice of Buddhism you can help us many ways. And the first one is simply that as I said before the many people have a very distorted perception of actually woulda was. Very often the stories that we read about their off not very reliable unfortunately often they're based on. Late Of the tradition works what happened a long long time after the boy to her and that much more legend mythology here and actually actual history of who I was. And because of that, it's the legend mythology by definition is something which tends to be inflated. It tends to be chained. There's not really a reliable historical record, a legend or a myth. The can be maybe a core of truth to these kinds of. Myth Baginda. Launch partner is going to be distortion over what actually happened. So to understand who they would say, we have to go back to the Buddha's on discourses. What is said two and a half thousand years ago, and only then can get a reasonable appreciation what it was and what? The dumber was all about in relation to his life. And when you're one reason for doing this is that it tends to actually give rise to lot of trust and confidence and faith in the Buddha's teachings. Because I have found in my own life, I've always had A. Little bit of historical interest in this mattress and the more I understand the Buddha who he was, what he did two and a half thousand years ago. The more. At the closer in a sense, it comes to me here the closer to more real he becomes and the more alive also becomes the Dhamma that he taught. is almost like a relationship with the Buddha, when you understand more of what type of personality and why he did the things he did and why He taught the dumb. My in the way that the extra taught the Dharma so. For me at least and I think it's probably the same for many of you. It gives rise to so much much more powerful faith trust confidence that this is the right thing. The greater understanding is the more powerful these things tend to become. and. Also, one of the results of this kind of inquiry. I can probably tell you the results strength away because it's very mundane avai ordinary. One of the results enquiring into the Buddha who the Buddha was that realized that in most ways in many ways, the Buddha was very much an ordinary human being dressed like the rest of us. He had his deferments. He had his problems just like asa and that's precisely precisely because. The Buddha was in many ways just like us. That is why his life is so significant for us. That is why we can't relate to him as a person that's why we can use his life as a kind of guiding light in our own practice. That's why we can understand what he was doing and he could understand us. If the Buddha was some kind of God. If the Buddha was some kind of otherworldly being, which has absolutely no relationship to humanity. Well, then his life is no guide to us anymore because become something completely separate there's no relationship between us and the bowdoin because he's something else something other. But if the Buddha is one of us is a human being then suddenly his life becomes tremendously significant because we can relate to him almost perfectly here and his life can become a guiding principle also how we can also. Live our life as Buddhist and practice to was awakening here, which obviously was the Buddha's own-goal. And when you start to read the discourses of the Buddha, you realized that often talked about his own life he mentioned how he practiced in mentioned what they did mentioned. How. He overcame problems in his meditation practice, all of these things he actually talks about and there's a reason for that. Obviously, the reason is to inspire the monks around him to spy the people to show them how they also should practice. If, the was not an ordinary human being there wouldn't be much point in talking about his own life because we would not be able to relate to it. It would make sense I. it wouldn't have any relevance in our own life anymore when. Would I was completed different from us. So this is one of the beautiful things that come out. We can find so much inspiration in the Buddha's life by realizing that essentially he is one of us. Human being. That also, another way we can use that there's a well-known meditation method that was taught by the road is called Buddha who saw which means recollection of the Buddha in the Pali language. And this is to remember who the Buddha was..

"We'll talk about that next time when we talk about the story of Cain and Abel, because I think it holds the secret to that, and in the meantime all stop with this story, but I want to tell you the story of the Buddha because it maps onto it very nicely. What do you have you have? You have a protected space. There's unconscious beings in a protected space something comes in the form of the serpent to reveal death. To reveal vulnerability and death right and then the paradise comes to an end. The human beings are eliminated from it and they don't get to come back. So God puts angels with flaming swords at the at the. Gateway to Paradise so that people cannot come back. It isn't obvious what that means except that there's gotta be some sort of trial by fire before reentering paradise, but we can leave that alone for a moment. So that's the basic structure of the story. unconscious. Human Beings emergence of knowledge. Realization of. And, suffering and the elimination of the Paradise. Right. Okay. So now I'll read you the story of the Buddha. The father of Prince Gautama. The Buddha. Savior of the Orient Determined to protect his son from desperate knowledge and tragic awareness built for him and enclosed pavilion. A Wall Garden diversely delights. Okay. So the story goes that an angel visited Buddha's father and said that he's going to have a son and the son is either going to become the greatest ruler that the world has ever seen or spiritual leader and the father being a practical man thought there's no way I want my son to be something like wandering spiritual leader I want him to be the greatest thing that the world has ever seen. Okay and so. The Father Decides How am I going to get my son to be the greatest ruler? The world has ever seen I better get him to fall in love with the world because then he's not gonna go traipsing after some sort of half witted spiritual knowledge. She's GonNa stick to practical tasks, right? That's something that fathers should do to some degree orient you in the world, and maybe you shouldn't subvert your your spiritual development to any great degree, but there's a practical element to this and so anyways, that's how it works and so that's what happens the father bills this city of perfection. and. He eliminates from it everything. That's really a reminder of the suffering that's associated with life. So the only thing that's allowed the only creatures that to be in there, the only people that are allowed to be in there are healthy young and happy people. So the Buddha grows up surrounded by nothing but the positive elements of life. Well, you think what? What does that mean? Well, it's akin to the Paradise Idea obviously walled enclosure of paradise where there's no death, but there's more to it than that to. It's also in some sense what a good father would do, what do you do with your young children? You don't expose them to death and decay at every step of the way. You build a protected world for them like a walled enclosure and you only keep what's healthy and life giving inside of it, and you don't expose them to things that they can't tolerate. Don't take three year old to a funeral. Maybe you do. But maybe you don't there's things that you don't expect them to be able to cope with you regulate what they're allowed to watch. You're not going to show them the tech Texas chainsaw massacre when they're four years old, right. So so you're staving off knowledge of mortality and death, and so he's just being a good father in many ways here. All signs of decay and degeneration were thus kept hidden from the prince. Emerged in the immediate pleasures of the senses in Physical Love, dance and music and beauty and pleasure. Gautama grew to maturity protected absolutely from limitations of mortal being however, he grew curious despite his father's most particular attention will resolve to leave his seductive prison. Well, it's that curiosity element. It's the same thing that lurks in the Adam and Eve story. It's God tells Adam and Eve. See that tree over there don't be bothering with it. You know what's going to happen with human beings. Especially, there's a snake associated with it. They're going to be over there right away check in that place out and that's exactly what happens with the Buddhist like he's raised to be healthy. and. What is what's the consequence of that is that? The fact that he's healthy makes them look for what's beyond protected confines of the thing that made him healthy. It's like what's like even in the story you know where? Japan. Paints on Pinnochio his mouth, and he's ready to go. He puts them outside the next day and Pinocchio is ready to run away with all the kids right. So the consequence of raising a child in a healthy way is that the child is going to be curious enough to go out there and look for some trouble and we actually know that because there is follow up studies of teenagers you imagined that there's teenagers who never break any rules. And then there's teenagers who break all the rules. Okay. These teenagers don't do very well introverted depressed anxious depressed story. I said that twice these ones are antisocial the ones in the middle that's what you want. You want your damn teenager to get out of the Paradise Confines of Your House and to go cause some trouble to investigate maybe you don't WanNa know about it any more than you have to you don't want them to be breaking rules.

"I've been asked on numerous occasions to lay out in an understandable manner, the teachings of Buddha. So over the coming months are articulate. The Buddha Dharma in an order that I hope you'll find both informative and easy to understand implement. I'm going to begin with the five precepts. Buddha said now there are these five gifts five great gifts, original, longstanding, traditional, ancient, unadulterated, unadulterated from the beginning that a not open to superstition will never be open to superstition, and our unfolded by knowledgeable, contemplative and Brahmins. Sai! What. Five gifts was he talking about? While he was talking about the five precepts. The precept saw the gateway into the Buddha Dhamma. The like the training wheels on the kid spike. That doesn't mean the alimentary easy to do because they're not. They're also not commandments, and we're not been told thou shalt not do something. They're more like guidelines that will help. Keep us on the straight and narrow. If we follow, these guidelines will not bring harm to ourselves and others. These guidelines are undertaken, so we can work towards reducing our suffering and the suffering of all beings. This is a theme that runs all the way through the Buddha Dharma. If we really want to be a responsible person within society. We have to ensure we are not harming anyone or anything. These five five precepts will help achieve that goal. I've told this story before, but I believe it's helpful to mention it again here. When I first decided to become a Buddhist monk, I was given these five precepts and told to hold them for six months. After six months. I had to return to my teacher and discuss how I got on. Early after that was I, allowed to take my full vows. I found them easy to understand, but not so easy to keep on a day to day basis. I would recite them before I got out of bed each morning as a kind of mental reminder, and to set my intention for the day. If I stray during the day which I invariably did. I would retake the precepts and strengthened my resolve not to break them again. Having this experience has helped me. Understand are hugely important. These precepts are and what a great springboard into the Buddha Dharma they are. The precepts. Refrain from take in life. reframe from false speech. Refrained from take it not been freely given. Refrained from harming others with the Sexual Act. Hungry frame from intoxicants illegal drugs. In the DHAMMAPADA versus two, four, six, two, four seven. But during explains the precepts in this way. One, who destroys life? WHO SPEAKS UNTRUTH? who takes what is not being given. Who goes to another man's wife or woman's husband? Who gives himself or herself to drinking intoxicating liquors. He or she even in this world digs up his or her own route. So let's go through each precepts individually. But Berry mind these mind. Protections may differ from a more traditional approach. I've tried to make the precepts relevant to today's world. I've also added my own personal perspectives. As. We've will Buddha Dharma. You'll have to decide for yourself. What does or doesn't work for you? Refrain from take in life. This one seems obvious, but it means more the not killing of a humans. It includes all sensual means. It also uncovers refraining from getting others to kill Lana behalf. For me. This goes much deeper than killing. I personally believe it covers not eating meat. Or mindfully killing insects or picking flowers or cutting trees.
