This week's FREE podcast: UNIVERSAL RESPONSIBILITY. second great wish, "May (all sentient beings) be free from suffering and the causes of suffering."

"Someone who is alive, but without outer perceptions, for example, in a coma, still maintains a perceptual link to this world. This is by means of their individual consciousness and interacting with not only their memories but possibly an interaction with the energy of this world that continues to feed their perceptions. This latter method produces a kind of dreamy aliveness that mixes ideas, memories, energetic aliveness of others and the world to interact, but not in such an alert way. When that perceptual web or dynamic is gone and the supporting physical structures such as brain functions and heart functions cannot sustain it, that person is said to die. In Buddhism, however, we take a larger view of the human life process, but not from the exclusive point of view of the physical being" ~ Domo Geshe Rinpoche ~~~

Our pets love to be around the juicy meditation energies but they are also unpredictable. They can jump up, bark or meow at any time, and if that should occur while we are in a delicate place, they could cause an energy accident. They can sit on us any old time but it is not a good idea during serious meditation. ( I am pretty sure that many will object to this idea, but it is well considered and presented to you with trepidation.) ~ Domo Geshe Rinpoche ~
