"And this was a three week retreat or two week retreat and he said and I really miss my wife and I can every sitting I fantasies about sexual fantasies about being with my wife. Anyone on his said What can I do? I know if you know a Suba meditations inch. That's the contemplate the unlovely -ness of the body the you know and and he gave taught him that at a go through the body for in the unload sometimes. It's called a loathsome this body but I think more accurately st unattractive aspect of the body. Okay so then the guy walks out and that is the worst interview I ever and he roared said what I do. That was wrong. I said look put put yourself in his shoes he just got married and he misses his wife and he has. He's having sexual fantasies about her and it finally moved through dense and knocks on the door. Wife is prepared. A Nice dinner for door says hi honey. Welcome home and he sees synovium overview. Your shoes blood saying Do you think that's a good way to come back from this. And he said he brought he said Yeah. I said that's good for him. For some lay people they're obsessed with Zang's it can be a nice correct in monastic very good. He's not a monastic. So this is one of certain ways in which they mean well but they the Matt how deep they've gone. There's something they miss. Yeah this is these are important discussions to be having. You started off talking about dignity and and edits to. We're trying and I went from the point where I was putting down monastics to the point where I realized way. That's did they they have. They're doing those who cut out for it. It can be a wonderful way of life for some when I lived at know quite a few of these mothers. I've never been a monastic and and have no never wanted to be people. Say I have had short hair insured in this. I say oh you wanted to be a monk. Somebody student I said No. I wanted to be a basketball player and when I grew up all best plays from Kentucky and Indiana at crew cuts. That's the only reason I never wanted. That'd be among Jews. Don't become monks. Had they have a different ideology. They say you can't become a rabbi until you're you can't be given the higher teachings until you're forty two married and have two children missing until you punched her alibi life enough you know we should. We can't trust the good teaching. Teaching is good teaching. And that's that's the Jewish way and I think as also the aging process. It's not all bad news stage. She like a lot of pettiness. Falls away naturally. And I compare this with John Cabot San. Who's been at this long? Just as long as I have in his own way not so much Buddhist but it's really steeped in Buddhism I've become less harsh and judgmental and what happened was I realize allies. The monastic life has its own beauty for those who it's appropriate for. When I lived not monitor I saw some of the monks who seemed like in Korea? They had a choice rice paddies army or be among their poor uneducated and being a but they didn't really have that much of a they weren't on fire the way the what Westerners came were they will we will weigh more motivated and in right way so and then there are others who just born to do it and we're great at it fine and we can all benefit from each other and so I I fell away and I do have respect for the monastics granted. They do know some things that we don't know I learned from monastics and I'm happy to when I'm in that context to wear robes so you whatever it is but why not three example when I teach I don't use any titles I don't wear my robes. I been given transmission and all that stuff I just wear ordinary clothes and three. It's a message to messages. I'm just a guy like you a person. Sorry I don't mean to gend gender. Did needed needed comes from how you live your life and true just as true for monastic is what what is it about them. As the way that locked in the vows they keep but equally the liposuction who lives with an ethical life exactly dignity. What about the other side so we took monastic lay? And then there's this other side of the coin. which is this mindfulness practices? That's become very good. You remembered yeah. Part was learning how to respect the monastic order. let's let's make it a complete the those of us who are really a among what I'd learned on forty years of teaching lay people and I've been teaching forty is about no almost is you asked. How's it going Many people saying oh it's wonderful. I feel they're being a bit extravagant. I'd I'd say we're just beginning to learn how to do it Some of what's helping now. Is that dire need now for inner work more and more the people. I'm very impressed with your younger generation. Who Come to to learn how to practice? And that they they already know die like like my generation. We were all half crazy you know from drugs from not knowing what to do with ourselves etc these people are not and there. They've studied they've read it. They've listed when they come and they also want to remain in their lives and they WANNA learn how to do this and So Oh we're beginning to learn how to do this and I would say it's a bit like what happens with like in Thailand which I know best the monastics and then the villagers most villages with exceptions most villages are not interested in meditation. They come for weddings and bar. Mitzvahs you you know They come for a whole or they come once a week and they offer food and then the the the monastic among Joan. Mahboob a boo Hoo. Readers will give a Dharma talk and they thank him and an airpor- the clothes tattered and it serves the role it's place them but most of them are not meditators now. Another lay person. WHO's really on fire with this? And same in Korea the monks gives them tremendous data not discriminatory discriminatory at all. I've seen the lay world. It's just the same. A very small proportion of lay people really want to do it and then most are still benefiting from it and I'm for example. I used to be a little bit. SLUTTY and snobby snobbish like people who come and if they didn't want to attain complete unto Tara. Some get out. You don't want to attain full enlightenment. I just like to calm down servers. Get Out so but what I've learned is and this is to get to the mindfulness appro spread all over the world and John Cabot sin is my close and dear friend so he tells me how he sees it and and I and I've he wanted me to teach in his program and I tried it briefly but I realized it was like teaching with one hand tied behind my back. I couldn't use everything I had learned in Asia and so I just left but I used to be a little bit sort of an I. Most this to my colleague most people in Buddhism that I knew which sort of see that as a watered-down Buddha Dharma discrediting the Dharma you know. They're getting a lot of it had to do people are going there instead it to Buddha Dharma I felt and exactly exactly and then finally I so I was part of that. I just felt like they're not were you know. And the truth is there is something comprehensive in the a whole Dharma paths that is lacking is an ethical component that's lacking etc but. Here's what I've come to answer your question when I realize is a number of years ago. Not because Johnny is my friend. John Cabin is because I saw This enough suffering to go around for all of us. There's really a lot of suffering in the world. Some of the people actually do do better with mindfulness face stress reduction than with Pasta. It don't WanNa pass has to offer and so I see Starwood Pasta. And then they move over they start pry and I meet them and they're much happier doing that. Great would doing therapy. Great there is. This wasn't for them and some of them start off with mindfulness based stress reduction and they wind up coming to the Pasta. They realize now I want to go into. Buddhism is much more there's something in the richness of it of an ancient tradition. And so they do and I'm saying There's enough business out there. We don't you know Let let many flowers hours boom Because there is no shortage and whatever helps people. I'm all for it so now when people come and basically they just want a Chama sumate practice. They're not incident is inside stuff whatever. That is an emptiness shooting. You don't bother Niro. He'll give me a headache. It's okay with me but I make it clear that what I'm teaching is. I have my an aiming on bringing people to really to shown Yata which I could and and Going deeply can however. If you don't WanNa go there that's alright but I feel that a feel real necessity and at least keeping out. That's of course to the conservative part to conserve woods. Timeless the four noble truths I found to be. It's not the only vehicle obviously but it's been useful for me. Once tomato came. He came here and we had a shot leaves sitting in this chair. I was on the floor and we talked about exactly this. This and you went through the same thing. Says we monks used to feel you know how dare they basis stuff and not teach it on. He said but now he realizes my goodness where you look around the world is these helping get. Yeah so I would share that jump on the bus. Get off at somebody if you want. Somebody stopped but here we go. Yeah there are any other final thoughts on these you know about almost twenty years ago. Giving us to give Wednesday night talks I would just general talks. Anyone could come at the end of it would be pretty crowded at CNC. Someone raises in. Say Mr Rosenberg. Are you Buddhist and got very quiet. Apparently people told me for four five minutes and I said no and and half the room got depressed and the other half were jubilant and Then I pause and I said if you mean by I Buddha just I know all holidays in the you know. I don't know any of that if you mean as a guide to living a mobutist here so when I came home home my wife. WHO's very common sense school in downtown? She said just say you're a Buddhist they don't understand non Buddhists. You're not being a Buddhist. The best way to be a Buddhist is not to be a bliss. Then you really a Buddhist says. Just say you're Buddhist and make it simple right you're right there's some wisdom for but so but there is something to that and now in my own case I try to see it because maybe beyond blocked there I have such a prejudice against organized religion but organized. Religion is what has us. That's not the right. Turn turn because what's the opposite disorganized religion. Hey maybe we'll sit at two o'clock tomorrow night. I think not maybe one thirty. I think five o'clock would be better whatever you want that'd be disorganized. So somebody institutionalized what can you come over. You know what I mean is accepting the whole package. The whole.

"We're learning how to do that. I said I'm not a trained therapist. I've never been in therapy not yet. But I'm I'm trying to learn how to do this. And he said well why don't you just send him to a therapist for or just seem five ten minutes. I said. Oh you don't understand. We we have to by doing that with saying daily life. Isn't that important lowy. Sade is but you can do best do that with a psychotherapist So we have to have there has to be if we tell them it's important we have to then ask them how you doing so I realize we mean it. That's right so that's been a challenge for all these these years and everyone who's been trained who teaches CFC. And it's hard for us. I'm doing my best at it and I teach it and I make it clear. I'm not. We'll ever perfect it but relationship is where we uman's full down if we don't take care of this but we want to save the world it's impossible because you can have confused fused minds trying to find other confused new ways to save confused world and more these days People are asking questions about probe that are will there used to be called office exists anymore. Daniel engaged aged Buddhist engagement. Is they're saying looked as the planet is in danger Politically I'd like to Disney But I also have love foot contemplative life and historically my reading of his is that very often to contemporaries. Don't bother with daily life you take take care of it and the people taking care of daily life. Don't meditate that much and so that and try to break that down. That's it was very helpful. I learned a lot if it's if it's not engaged Buddhism or something like that. He's not engaged Buddhism. Ah Yes or no thing. They this this idea of engaged Buddhism. Just because you're Buddhist and you're engaged doesn't mean it's engaged Buddhism exactly so what is Buddhist list about the engagement. That's a question. I think you touched on something very important. Very early about you'll visit to Germany and the recognition that those people would not so different in some way we're all humans and we all have a sort of certain potential and recognizing that recognizing recognizing something in you and then that similar rather than this big Soda Division that activism often starts with any way on correctly. Yeah and that's one of the key things in my own teaching because I love to sit myself personally into in touch but I also know there's much more to life than that Cambridge is an interesting place to teach because you've got a lot of people who are Successful in many the aspects of life have good universities good jobs young etc and it's an interesting place K. and and Many of them. Now no people your generation. They don't want daylight they're they're they're going to be get. PhD's or they're going to work for. Oh Science Research Organization for wisdom but you know but they also want to keep the contemporary And they WANNA know how. How can this practice this help help us way? And so. Here's a typical question. Person starts it will. I usually have a lot of time. We sit when I teach. We usually sit for for a bike. Forty five minutes and then we have We talked arm On the hour and a half or so like this and so person has a question said I starts talking. There's a lot of energy there. He says these oil companies are so greedy There something it has to be done politically. They're just How much money do they need? And the person's going on on and destroying the planet and just just to make money in. Don't they understand that they do. They live on this planet. They'll have children grand yarmouth go Finally there's a limit to how much the narrative you can listen to he said. Don't you agree Mr Rosenberg. Absolutely I said absolutely and I pause and I would say something like Have you dealt with your own greed yet and they would go but You know saying you're you agreed is the same as there's just a AH bigger. Playing field uses tiny. It studied aurore. Start working on yours. Yeah that's the contemporary part. And then if you do do you mind is going to get clearer. It has to if you really doing it then for some of you because I know that others you have different issues. Some of YOU WANNA help in politics six. But you'll bring a mind that has a little wiser and a little kinder than the one you were going to us we just anger motivating you and do political work or work for a global warming or solar heating or whatever it is And this is what I do. I'm trying to do my best to protect contempt of live but say by all means go out there. Yeah I think it's I think you're making an important point and that that's very current right at the moment and that we have to be aware of this idea that the world needs me so bad that I don't have time for my own practice. That's that's a that's another form of spiritual oh by asking and related to it as people who are relatively new whom somewhat not so say. Well there's an are meditation. All about took isn't a possibility. You'll become just narcissistic just working on yourself me myself this attachment to me. Mind Niro. I'm saying it can become come narcissistic but that's not the real practice because the truth is you're seeing through all of that and that's what you bring to your life whether you call it engage Buddhism or not what you can only give the people in your life who you are and so whatever we're doing yourself is going to be more than just narcissism itself a billy gays getting a Bagel Navel Gazers. So I think yeah and so this experiment you running like an experiment. You've gone straight to the center of a Ct.. You've planned to odometer into their and you've said we're GONNA we're we're going to work on the four noble truths holistically in daily life exactly. I'm wondering how you think after you know being decades now right. How's this experiment behrman going First of all let me back up. I'M GONNA lead into it you saying I gave the very first Dharma talk as when the center opened and the talk I gave was based on something from an ancient Buddhist tax. It's called the Sudi Maga Something my favorite text because a lot of it. WHO's if that weird I would not be doing? But there's some I'm good things at it lists ten places not to start a meditation center so I started to talk of and I said it shouldn't be in a busy area. Shouldn't be political scores. It shouldn't be where a lot of student it goes on and on and I said we ate out of the tent. We should not be here so so. That's exactly why we are here and saying and I realize what we're being a this is a comes from my training zen from Cincinnati who would often say a bad situation is a good situation. That's why we're here because we have to look at the store we live in and it's not to discredit can template of live by all means go on retreats To find time in your home and all but inevitably you come back into the world world now. Then we get into the issue of which you asked earlier Daniel Mu- monastic versus secular. When I first started out Trying to find the my mandate was very clear to me but how to do it certainly was not and that is. Can we find lay practice this which has dignity and is not a kind of second-class going to monks all the time. And saying please please tell me how I should do. My saying one where it is really has its own dignity and appreciation tation and respect And it's not second class. Can we turn. How do we do that if it can be done? I also said I'm fully aware that maybe up next generation there'll be no CMC and we realize we gotta mainly met make monastic but this is what we're trying because this is the time we live in and what I found myself is at first I then developed an anti monastic. You know to help me do it. And I saw in myself. I was used to being a professor for ten years. You know where your Professor Rosenberg professor. And now suddenly the monks higher than me you know and I felt like what I'm a professor ex-professor I told her. But now I gotta sit down the floor and they sit out on the couch and I have to go like this. Even Western monks who've been sitting long as long as And I had some very bad rough experiences with some of the monks One I won't mention names but a Westerner who is maybe a monk for five years and I invited About about ten students of mine and some were colleagues who had years of practice much more than him and invited him into. What was my living room which used to be the which was at the Meditation Centre and we and and this John Google a named and he sat up on the couch and we all sat on the floor and I understood that was protocol and then he pontificated is whistling? uh-huh basically condescending speaking down to us for An hour and a half hour and fifteen minutes lead has quite and many people fell into that mode and I. Maybe it's arrogant something on my part I I found it nauseating that we didn't have respect for ourselves so that At the end of it when everyone left I stayed Nice said I said and I bow down three times. They said what I'm bowing down to issue robes but as for you you had no respect for us. You didn't know anything about us. Most of those people have way way beyond what you are and just because you wearing robes you want that kind of treatment saying but you're tradition is protected the Muck monastic order protected and also sometimes destroyed it but mostly protected. So it's available to me and I'm I have. It has a lot of credit because I have gratitude for it and a Ah but to his credit this monk I said what we have to Lisa will he was humble and then he said he didn't realize he was doing that and he said okay. I said look. If this is GonNa work we lay people have to learn how to respect monastics and you monastics have to learn how to respect us and they may be areas. Here's where you can help us. More near as we can for example some of the advice that some of the monks give about marriage and sex a ridiculous. They don't know what they've never. They've never been married. They've never had sex and I can give you one example interesting He won't mind anyway. Years ago he came and I was a teacher at the insight Meditation Society and he said we we became friends. And he said Larry I'm going to give some interviews. And he was very open a very open guy and he's terrific and he said would did you come and sit in and tell me what you think about the interviews from a lay person's point of view. I said sure Google awesome so I did and of couple went by some of the standard your brain playbook you know more sitting is called for and then someone comes in someone who'd been married a year and a half I johnny said We do we not been married very long..

"Here's the difference between how the relative way in which to teach two foreign troops in how Christian murdy with teach for example apple. The very last time I saw him he gave talks at the United Nations and then for one week there. Eight of us. Who spent the whole week with him two hours in the morning morning to house in the afternoon and we we took up the theme of fear? And we'd go over it this way. That way. The way he works and then we got to Friday. It was time for all of us to go home and about five minutes left. Maybe ten minutes left. Suddenly we feel I must say when he walked in. I hadn't seen him in a year here. He was now About Ninety Eighty nine ninety and I saw a frail He seems shorter and Frail once he started teaching he was timeless I meanwhile the energy report out of him so and then at the end of it he get back into like like it'd be an he's an old man you know and you could see it. He had a lot of afflictions physical affection which she didn't talk about so He starts talking. He's gone off. His trolley has gone off the track. Yes he's saying. During the lunch period my friends took me to one of the top jewelers in New York and I had one of the greatest jewels In the world in my hand and I looked at it looked at this jewel and I saw the way it was cut and the way the light was refracted through it and the different shades and he went on and on about the jewel will said an I got so totally in it that I went through it and I was free and said fear. Is that jewel. Fear is actual. Yeah and he said would you don't realize we're entire bottom they teach Let go of it. Let go of it. But they don't teach too much they they don't of transforming that energy witty let go what happens to it when you let go when you're aware of it. So what he was trying to say is that it's a jewel because 'cause there's so much energy trapped does my worry as he wouldn't talk sway so much energy trapped in no something like fear not the words the energy of fear that when you completely open to it it releases that energy and then it takes you to your empty an emptiness automatically you have to be that's gone at at least for a while and so That's not the non dual approach. So it's both you're paying attention to the leaf but you're also in paying attention. His language by fully being with what is you'll be you transcend what is so entire von. They don't there's so much at least teaches i. It doesn't mean they don't know the non dual they don't use that language because if you meet someone like Arjun Chow booted. It does so are some of the others you may know. They were out there and but they didn't talk. Non dual dual. Yeah I do. What Non Jill Jill Chris Mooney feet because this is a full Krishnamurti resolving fee if it needs to to be resolved at all is paying attention to fee right? He had office now to me. He's teaching the foreign troops are calling it that yes it's just he. It doesn't offer enough help with the eightfold path to the methods. He doesn't offer any methods except well. He doesn't away because he's saying learn. Be Aware without judging an a a mind. That's not reactive. That is not four against whatever's happening. Well we didn't grow up that way okay. So he's he's done. It's a kind of method that in Zan they called a method of gnome acid him. So he's so you have to to do that. Take some doing because to begin with conditioning. Which interposes between ourselves and what's happening in life people and and stuff when he said pay attention to how you actually live and at the Cambridge insight Meditation Center? Why iced I found it at place? Why because having done years years of long-term Meditation Retreats Three Months Retreats in Korea Japan? Here I'd sitting alone for months at a time time. I did lots of sitting and I sat with people. We did lots of three months retreats together and and then typically the mindset we had was was like an insight meditation society where they do a lot of look three months retreats. And it's you know you sit a lot silent lot so I I was still a t as a teacher but they I felt I wanted to. I'm was moving from Zen to there and they invited teach said. I'm not ready yet. I'm still zen. Let me learned pasta better. So what I'm trying to say is what I saw for myself. And the people around the three mugs retreat would end. And then we'd have nine months for the next three month retreat and then so you the Fremont retreats that you accomplish a great deal and you walk out and within about an hour your jerk America again. You know. It doesn't take much. The Buddha says mindfulness sitting standing walking and lying down. That means all well. It's it's a way of life. It isn't just limited to sitting and walking or formal practice. So that's I started. We need a place right in the middle of Sodom and Gomorrah so I started. EMC and a very wealthy woman. Fortunately blow all this and I people said well. Why do you want in a city Eddie as Plenty of country places that they're going to be more coming up and there are now all over places to do and I'm all for that it just inevitably you come off. There are a lot of people who can't go away full three months or trees. They're married or have job. So this and that we need a place right here and so. This is perched between between Harvard Square and Central Square. And the emphasis is on my fluorescent into in daily life. Because I found was the biggest cliche in circles circles everyone believes in it. And no one's doing it why it's hard relationship. Uman races obviously not done too well and learn how to live together. The extreme is war. This brings up the topic of the monastic life in life. And so there's many of your teachers being Monastics Crystal Mountain wasn't obviously but many of them have most most of them have and so you're like that generation of taking making that lean agent trying to apply as a layperson. What what you know? What are the challenges in the solutions in? That sort of situation Here when I spend time with Jim Buddha Dasa after at time of leaving he was escorting me to. We'll get a catching a bus leaving. And I've said agendas agenda Buddha Dasa Do you have any parting advice. for added bringing the teachings Cambridge Massachusetts said. I don't know I've never been to the United States. And he said but I know the history of Buddhism as it's moved from one culture to the next he said it has to be both conservative and radical at the same time and I said what he saw me like startled and he said and I don't mean politically he said Conservatives said you travel all these thousands of miles to fact learn all this stuff team say stuff and Said and you got sick could need food etc Why did you do it because there's something here that was was valuable right? He says yeah and so. Would you like to conservative says. Yeah that's what I mean by conservatives. Something worth protecting and saving I said and he said but if you bring it back to where you learned it in Thailand and try to deliver it exactly the way you found it in Cambridge wherever else you the teaching the less. It'll die because you gotta you gotTa figure an that does a delicate balance between being radical and conservative. And it's hard to find it. You gotTa feel your way into your the first generation. He recognized what you just said Daniel and And you said you're GONNA get that started may take generations to finally figure out what it is and then you you know your culture well and you're going to have to make some modifications indication's but you have to be careful that in the process of doing that. You don't dilute what you want to conserve. The essence of the of the Buddha was talking about so what I found was when I those great advice you gave men that plus the Dalai Lama's yeah so those is to have been they've been my north star. They've but so then. How do you do it when I started teaching? All of us. Joseph Goldstein. In my opinion all of us Westerners who the first generation who didn't want to be monks but we will but we love to practice and I feel certainly myself and I feel perhaps some of my colleagues we are too much in protecting the conservative. Because because it didn't this is what we had just learned but ten years will have a long we were there and So I was too conservative teaching stuff that was not as relevant and then Then I realized it by people can say I don't WanNa do that as an example of Oh when I I was in Koreans and even before that people would call up and saying I don't WanNa do the goal at Korean and Chinese Shanty says can we meet in the cafe and and I liked the teaching but I wanna do all that other stuff. Yeah I say so I will go to some sites and aim who is a great teacher one of my he. He was terrific and And I said and we strip it down a little too much Korean. Any got furious says Great Shoghi order come to the United States. No we teach at justice. Way You'll teacher dissuade you know okay so radical and have to say more conservative Seventy Min radical what he didn't realise and some of it was later on his start to learn as people started to drop away from it that he had to make some changes but he couldn't we had to. It's the first generation of exactly. Yeah so so I. I was too conservative. Then when I realized that I went to the other extreme I was missed. A Free Spirit four noble truths cute but Just be open to life is life is here. It is just be aware of learn from it. You know sort of Ah then I backed off on that and I would say it's been a steady But trying to teach the four noble teach in an urban center enter like CNN Cambridge insight. Meditation Center I first of all people who donors wanted to said we could have a larger large replace and we could have ten or fifteen people living yet and I said No. I don't want this to be dormitory living. That's what monasteries have and retreat centers. I want people to come here to learn stuff and then we sold them back into life and then but we start talking about at their life. one of the things. I realized we would ask them about. How did you practice going? We were just up there. They're sitting and if the while I realized I'm asking how their practices going and they and they always automatically start talking about that. Well I didn't quite get the sitting in my sittings but a little were used to give a lot of interviews and At a certain point I realized as zinc practices sitting. But the reason they do is i. There's no accountability said President. Say How's your practice going well. I didn't sit much. I said I said I started to- changing as I didn't ask you about sitting. I asked about your practice. How relationships this going he said? Oh my my my mother-in-law's drive me crazy. Are you suffering there. He said Yeah. I said that's the place of practice. It's very rich and so we would kind of get people to do it and then But a lot of my colleagues didn't understand understand what we would do for example. I won't mention names. Would someone came through and he wanted. He wanted to start a sentence like Cambridge detention center in California. The layperson. Yeah and then I told him I said we have interviews. That are half hour having nothing to do with retreats because we talk about daily life yeah and we really really want people to talk about daily life and then we want to apply Dhamma principles to be here..

"It's all I knew and PNN will sit right in front of him because you could feel. He was really alive life if you read. His biography seems like that he would always WanNa be this certain times. He won't be clean or something because he felt like something was coming through him but he it was very much against sort of superstitions. Well yes this sort of contradictory BIA. He I think he realized it in a way the way he came into. All this is not how everyone else is going to come to. He himself says he says at my Fr- I maybe I'm a human freak. Be What he taught was very similar similar to what the essence of Zan. Here's what it to Ben Ben Lama who spent years of this him who's very close to Krishnamurti Birdie and also remained. He was the sound on some lovely man. Beautiful Guy met him once and What some says his KRISHNAMURTI's Birdie's teaching? He couldn't see any difference between a and teachings of the Buddha but Krishnamurti with teach the absolute all the time. Yeah Christine The Buddha will teach from the relative and the absolute for might have us now being enormous stuff. Obviously the Buddha was a brilliant teacher the relative okay this is seems to be essential. Until you can shed Krishnamurti's it's not that realistic for example now for Europe a number of years now. But I've been practicing for a while while I don't have a particular message. I mean. Just just awareness. I sit now and then if the minds a little bit rocky then I'll go to breakfast I I. I have an affinity for On policy breath Mindful breathing as you probably know. I wrote a book on it and Did a lot of research and they'll have to use a practice so the put even that it's just technique I'm just myself sitting and it's become easier to just watch everything come and go oh and without grasping pushing away and But I couldn't do that at the beginning and that's when I realized I tried to do what he would say. And I saw that I wasn't doing too well. And then I reached out for a a Koreans mess who came to Cambridge before we get to the azan I've said that Krishnamurti teachers from the top of the mountain and basically is instruction is get to the top of the mountain but he doesn't teach the way up it very good way to put it and so But then you described him talking about meditating on the leafs like trying to leave the would leave. That seems like a good practice. What's the gap none that node? He isn't that bad that's where he's really simply. Ah I know. Mostly mainly I've had some centrating too Soto's in some ways similar of Pasta when he has is you'd be mindful of the leaf is not dualistic like it's such total attention that there's no observer there's no meditators and so it's both a means Anand whereas a typically let's say if you even far tradition in a survey more realistic realistic sort of like like Agenda He would say be that which knows. It's the meditators donors because realistically sickly to begin with. We're all self conscious. We're learning a new skill and we WANNA learn how to do it. And of course as you the meditators ego the meditators capital gains. And so Chris Murphy is saying Real Meditations when you kill the meditators okay yeah but you need the meditated to begin with putting Schema. Yeah there the differences Stewart stick. Because they're saying wait a minute there's an observer near objects that you watch K- The multi car who really understood an Indian woman who had mentioned who's really understood Christian. Mary spent years with him when and I spend time with her. She was much more down to Earth on this issue and she said look. It's only natural that you're going to be self conscious. You learn a new skill. You WanNa you WANNA learn how to do it properly. You can ask people how to do it techniques have a place And so it would be dualistic saying but at a certain point it where's itself out and then you naturally find yourself being non dual and also there are moments when you really interested in something if you check could you see you up there. And that's why it's so clear. So KRISHNAMURTI's always teaching at nine hundred a perhaps but it's to me. It's it's a nice link between the world of objects in the world of emptiness and his big thing. That is very hard. I don't I just don't see the truth of it or I haven't have not seen. I wish it were to. I don't feel I need to teach her not because arrogant is. I've had a lot of teachings and a lot of practices and now I know what to do when I found the password heart. The one that's worked for me and it's just a matter of just do it. And so in my golden years. I'm doing it and I'm still open to teaching kings and teachers and if someone is I meet who can help me. I'm open and if I hadn't if I could degree to which I can still be here and help other people bill. I do it but I'm I'm semiretired so I'd much more time for myself to my practice so you you think Chris Montes instruction where you don't need a teacher. You're skeptical of that. It's I am I am if I could link it up with the Dalai Lama. This was before Cambridge insight Meditation Center which is now about thirty five abusers hold before it even started right before it started. I don't know how I was fortunate enough but I had a full hour with His Holiness. The Dalai Lama just the two of us and he was the Dalai Lama. You know just I open the door and I was ready to go through. And he just informed enforce puts his arm around me so I put my arm around him. I didn't play you know. And then he's he sits down we sit down and then we start to talk and ACIS. Oh too much sun who says up greed already you know reading so we moved to where the sun was shining and then we talked about this that and the other and then what about ten minutes to go. He gave me advice. I can't tell you how important it has been. I just starting center. It had years of training in Asia and starting to Cambridge insight. Meditation and I said I said we. We haven't opened yet. We're getting ready. I anticipate a certain problem. We're going to have having lived in Cambridge for many years in Cambridge. There's an abundance of riches you know you want to bet and Buddhism wet flavor you there five style would send you want to one. Do you want to declines. Then we're more aggressive more. Do you want a Soda Zan where it just quieter And a a when I said if you go to Cambridge zero lease pictures of Gu's Meiling Happy Gurus. They all have the fastest way. The best way every flavor of ice cream. Whatever if you want we got it and I said so when people come to the center the heads are GonNa be filled with occupying chair massage? A seat this is Tuesday. I have You know getting massage. Wednesday time for occupied macrobiotic Diet on Thursday. And I said so the mind is going to be a full of all these smiling happy gurus and different paths and And that's why he went off. Aw No problem as no problem okay. Look all Buddhists agree on the foreign troops slow bit different each one and has a little bit different but we all agree on the four noble truths and said look. I said you know the phone. Which is okay? Sure he says make that the real very very important part part of you teaching says make sure it's deeply new. Pass it onto the people who are going to do some teaching helping you because when people come in and you get to know them you can see that person doesn't know anything about the four noble truths. They don't have a practice. St Radically all type so this person is on the second noble truth. But they don't understand is so you went and so but the four noble truths can be a a paradigm and that'll keep the central heron. So that's what I've done so see we don't always call it that it. I take take taking a fresh look for nodules. Show the four noble truths Is a paradigm that I use. Personally now it's become so internalized. Her analyzed that I don't need to exteriorise it to myself for which I do when I teach it sometimes people need to hear about words itself. What said but the truth is you and this is the hardest part of the teaching? I do when you emphasize this Sutra. which was the first teaching? The Buddha gave supposedly Rosalie is. You're asking people to look at Duca. The unsatisfactory -ness of life the last thing they want to look at. That's what brought them here. Yeah and so I'm saying and Christopher Merdias saying just look at it and he was he would get brilliant talks. You would assume that if you didn't have a teacher you just look at your suffering and what what I discovered over the years and certainly since I site teaching is that's hard as part of my job. Use Humor use was anything back off the person's not ready for it yet. No one to go to breath do met Do some walking meditation or at person is stronger than they know. Keep deep with their And often teachers very helpful especially that First Noble Truth To as inspiration operation as someone who has been new knows away around now and then you have an example in the West. We have to do this. You know sort of like I I. You should see how how frightened I was looking at my loneliness but now I you know so you and your inspiring and also giving support people to do which for many the hardest thing for them to do in this particular paths you move from the foot of the mountain up. Yeah and ECON race up there because you had to spend time that he's offering. I think for Christian Moody if you wake up on the mound on the top of the mountain of non geology. Then of course you feel like you don't need a teacher right for the rest of US got to spend time on the bottom and and stay with that. Yeah but I stayed with him. Had like what used to call the University of Double Major. I don't know if you would be Buddhism and Christian wordy because I knew it was very similar to what the Buddha was talking about but it was stripped of. No no help no supplementary practices that would seem to be. The Buddha was amazingly skillful. Oh teacher yeah. And then gave birth to go to all these countries Mike God eat cultures ever developed brilliant teaching Ching since the Buddha Sasa Cranky. You met the Korean teachers that I did.

"So in a way, it's the difference. Maybe a young kid sits down at a piano and can pick out a little tune no hunting and just gets incredibly excited right about the, oh, I hit the keys and music comes out. And if I do it dry it, you know, maybe something nice, and that's very different than somebody who spend hours and years of training to play the piano bright, obviously, their experience is going to be very different. But that I. Those first tinkling 's right? The kid that may be the seed that's that awakens in them an interest to further training, and then particularly for westerners, then what becomes difficult. I think is whatever that balance is between the joy of the thing and the discipline thing because there's a kind of allergy to to the idea of regimentation the idea of disciplined, but there does end up having to be a balance between persistence and the jaw. Yes, definitely keep in mind, though, that the teachings and the practices can be presented very differently with different teachers, and there's a whole spectrum of the way it's taught some really I've had teachers really fierce and demanding right and challenging and so I wouldn't necessarily recommend a teacher like that for somebody. Who's just beginning the explanation, right, right? Might turn them off it might or low for some it might really inspire them. But there's no guarantee that other teachers I miss this was true of my first teacher an injury, very spacious. It was almost like a Taoist style. They open very open, very spacious, non regimented. And so for me at that time that was great. I love that centrist. And he said something when I first went to India, their it totally hooked me in terms of studying with him. He said if you want to understand the mind sit down and observe it. And that was all that was the instruct instruction. Then there was no form. There was no schedule. Right. There was no ritual. He just at that time very few people were there in India westerners. So this was back in sixty seven. So maybe there were five six westerners. You guys are the pioneers in that way. And so I loved it. I was really practicing on my own in my own way. But going to see him, you know, so he would give me feedback attack this and that suited me, right? Other teachers are more structured, and they have a more formal schedule and routine and for other people that Burks. So there's just this range of ways we can get into it without making this too much about me speaking for my own practice. What I've been doing is diving into all the teachers that are available and like the Dharma seat up and sometimes I'll use like you have the open sky meditations. Those are very wide open at the moment. I've gone back to Larry Rosenberg per precise threat star. But there's still like being on your own with an app and a bunch of teachers in the abstract. You're still kind of always in doubt as to what should I do? Yes. That's the tricky bit. Yeah. Well, I think it's at that point in the practice where you'll very recognize the interest in yourself, and you have done explored in various ways different practices and listening to different teachers. So I think you're at the place in your practice where you've probably heard enough different things right to see which one or two or three teachers you most connect with sure and then to make an effort to actually establish some kind of relationship so it can be an ongoing feedback. You know, where you can talk about your practice and feedback. So this may be that could be the place, you are in your pack. This. Yeah. And as we go along it will be different at different times. Right. So that kind of open ended exploration is great. I think that is the way to enter into it all because there is so much, and it gives you a chance to kind of suss it all out. Okay. Which really resonates with which doesn't so the person noble truth Buddhism, being that Duca Duca in Pali, which is that basically unsatisfactory nece or unreliable reliability life. You can't there's nothing you can hold onto leads to the fourth truth, which is that there is a path now to this. And that the path is it's this eightfold, Pat and take in one way, it can seem like this is a sequence prescription for the steps you need to go through to.
