Lions Roar : May 2009
SHAMBHALA SUN MAY 2009 43 When I’m teachIng in front of large groups, I often confront a rather embarrassing problem. my throat gets dry as I talk, so I tend to drain my glass of water pretty early on in the teaching session. Invariably, people notice that my glass is empty and they very kindly refill it. as I continue to speak, my throat gets dry, I drink the en- tire glass of water, and sooner or later, someone refills my glass again. I go on talking or answering questions, and again someone refills my glass. after some time—usually before the teaching period is scheduled to end—I become aware of a rather uncom- fortable feeling, and a thought crosses my mind: Oh dear, there’s an hour left for this session and I have to pee. I talk a little bit more, answer some questions, and glance at my watch. now there’s forty-five minutes left and I really have to pee. half an hour passes and the urge to pee really becomes intense. Someone raises his hand and asks, “What is the difference between pure awareness and conditioned awareness?” the question goes to the heart of the Buddha’s teaching about the third noble truth. Often translated as “the truth of cessation,” this third insight into the nature of experience tells us that the various forms of suffering we experience can be brought to an end. But by now I ReaLLY, ReaLLY have to pee. We Always Have Joy In his new book, Joyful Wisdom, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche shows us how to discover the joy and awareness that are never affected by life’s ups and downs. phOtO BY maRvIn mOORe phOtOBYBILLRathje
