lessons from a young monk

young monkAn early influence: while at university one of my professors of religion had a young Tibetan monk who’d been held and tortured for years by the Chinese visit our classroom…this young Tibetan man who had been so gravely mistreated exuded peace and joy and felt no hatred for his captors…his calm, loving and wholly genuine expression of equanimity and understanding of the human condition has stayed with me always.
