There's some really good advice / tips in this video for those starting out on the path. Created by one of our own too 😃

    It is @Shoshin - and it affirms a lot of the experiences I've had over the years.

    I am thoroughly enjoying this talk (still listening/watching it). Excellent teaching style and I identify with much of this :+1:

    Really down-to-earth talk. Glad I watched it. But @Bunks, please fill me in:

    Not knowing the ranks of NewBuddhist members all that well (please forgive!), and not knowing what @Bunks meant by "one of our own" (his sangha, NB, etc?), I wondered if @Shoshin was the speaker:

    It is @Shoshin - and it affirms a lot of the experiences I've had over the years.

    If not, I'd have used different punctuation so as not to confuse old people like me:
    "It is, @Shoshin, and it affirms a lot of the experiences I've had over the years."

    It's not @Shoshin @Nirvana - apologies for any confusion. I have no interest in grammar so just type trains of thought usually.

    It is a young fellow whose name escapes me right now but he was a fairly regular contributor until he ordained a few years ago.

    Thanks @Bunks for posting this, it's really good.

    It was a great talk Jayasara. <3

    You are obviously paying for your keep. o:)
    I like the 'mind as entertainment' bit.

    As you know the cyber laity here have little guidance, apart from our own experiences and the occasional word of wisdom from a passing Bodhi.

    Don't be a stranger. We need the scraps ...
