Park bench talk with a nun in a museum....

VastmindVastmind VeteranMemphis, TN Veteran

They make a fairly odd couple. The television and film star Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire, The Big Lebowski) sits alongside Shambhala nun Karma Trime Lhamo, the director of Princeton Buddhist Meditation Group.....

Buscemi asks sincerely felt, straightforward questions, while Ani Trime responds with wisdom reminiscent of her late teacher, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Watch as she shares her thoughts on dukkha, meditation, and the importance of being kind.

nice 11 minute video on tricycle......

    Thanks for sharing! Great conversation. Its nice to hear some one who's practiced for 40 years say
    " I get angry- anger doesn't stop. But you can stop acting on your anger whether its towards yourself,or your loved ones or the guy across the street."

    She goes on to use a Yoda quote that Ive used myself! She didn't get it verbatim though.
    "Try not! Do or do not. There is no try!" Yoda

    For some reason it won't play for me - probably because I'm not subscribed to tricycle.

    If it's not free, it's not for me!
