The Monk's Tale
« on: October 14, 2010, 09:39:22 am »
I found this interview very interesting, sprinkled with adventure, sorrow and a few golden truths. It basically covers the entire life of an old Tibetan monk, during occupation and exile. They could totally make a movie about this guy!

The story begins here -> The Monk's Tale
My actions are my only true belongings.
I cannot escape the consequences of my actions.
My actions are the ground on which I stand.

Thanks! A wonderful story.

So inspiring to see how he dealt with the challenges forced on him and how he managed his karmic responsibilities.
