On a warm, sunny day, Rinpoche and I sat by the Stupa, facing the River. I asked him if the sky is very blue in Tibet and he said, "Very blue." Then we circumabulated the Stupa in silence. A beautiful little while together.

One funny - and all too true - comment he made about people having trouble breathing properly for meditation is that their jeans are too tight. I think of it with a rueful laugh every time I'm not breathing properly during meditation.
