An excellent talk. Walking for alms is an important tradition to maintain, even in the West. I am not so sure about taking vitamin P though :tongue:

This is a good article-- you should've added a description to get people interested in reading it!

Indeed.
Bare links - or embedded videos - don't start a conversation.

AA: When you relinquish control and take on the simplicity of the renunciate life, you have an opportunity to reflect on all the things to which you’ve become habituated. You take on restrictions in order to contact the most profound dimension of your own nature. There are no special meals or special rooms for special needs. If you’re continually seeking comfort or trying to arrange the material world to meet your preferences, then you don’t notice those areas of bondage and attachment, and they remain barriers to accessing the fundamental unconditioned nature of the mind.

IM: In giving up the desire for control of your own life, you’re finding freedom.

AA: Yes, and that’s practicing Dharma in line with the Dharma.
