More notes from interactions


Milarepa (Photo credit: MarenYumi)



“It’s like the sun. The sun and the rays are not separate.”

“Yes! I have lots of recommendations for books you could read. You should read Milarepa, 100,000 songs of Milarepa… It’s like milk, pure milk. You can churn milk into cheese, into butter, into cream, but you have to churn it.”

“You don’t go to a restaurant and worry about if there is chemicals or poison in the food… you just eat the food… it’s the doubt..”

me- “So doubt is the problem.”

lama- “It’s a very big problem.”

“You should go out more [with your wife.] Don’t just stay home, boring boring. Go out. [Your marriage] has two legs. You can’t walk with only one leg. You have to use both legs to walk around.”

me- “When I try to generate bodhicitta, it’s easier for me to use music, then when I can feel it. Is that ok?”

“Yes, that’s ok for now.”
