Lions Roar : September 2007
SHAMBHALA SUN SEPTEMBER 2007 104 Sister Chan Khong seems very comfort- able; she and Thay have been on this path together for more than four decades. “Vegetarian meat,” Thay explains, laughing gently as he hands us a plate of fried mushrooms. “And how has your ex- perience been here with us?” “It has been wonderful,” I say. “And it has really enhanced my filmmaking prac- tice. I always say that filmmaking is about being aware, about truly seeing, but here, surrounded by so many mindful people, I have been even more mindful. Even if I wasn’t directly participating in the walk- ing meditation, I was moving very mind- fully from shot to shot. Every moment has been a meditation. Thank you for that.” Cher adds, “The lay delegation wanted us to let you know how happy they are to be with you, Thay. They asked us to pass that on.” He bows with his hands joined together. Sister Chan Khong talks about her visit to the free Buddhist-inspired schools they have set up in places where the children have no access to education. It is always sweet to see her with children—she seems to be the youngest of them all. She de- scribes to Thay how she had to go on the back of a motorcycle to get to the more remote schools, bumping along the red, dusty roads through coffee plantations and up the sides of mountains. She laughs uproariously as she tells how the motor- cycle driver tried to reassure her by say- ing, “Don’t worry, if you crash, I will too!” She’s vibrant and feisty, quite a contrast to Thay’s quiet joy. After dinner, Thay offers us cookies for dessert, and then we set up the camera for the interview. “If you ask good questions, you’ll get good answers,” he tells me. He looks deep into my eyes, holding me in his powerful yet gentle gaze as he answers my question about the meaning of love. “Love in Buddhism has very spe- cific meanings,” he says. “First of all, it is loving-kindness, the capacity of offering joy, offering happiness, relief. The second element of true love in Buddhism is com- passion. Compassion is the capacity of re- moving the pain and suffering in the oth- er person. The capacity of helping him or His Holiness Menri Trizin 33rd, Lungtok Tenpai Nyima, “throne-holder” and spiritual leader of the Bon religion, will return to the USA to transmit the last of a three-part teaching on the uniquely Bon A-Tri Dzogchen meditation system. This teaching will include the practice of phowa (rainbow transformation) and A-Tri Dzogchen initiation.
