The saddest Dharma Talk, ever...

Bup Hae (Candace Palopoli) August 19, 2012.
http://muddywaterzen.podbean.com/2012/0 ... isode-100/

"* This Dharma Talk given by Bup Hae was, in my opinion (and probably many others), the single most powerful, genuine, fully authentic, inspirational, brave, courageous, and transformational Dharma Talk yet recorded at MWZ. I thank Bup Hae for openly sharing her story and experience and highly recommend you listen to this talk. There could not possibly be a better Dharma Talk to mark this 100th podcast milestone.

Hapjang,

Bup Mee Sunim"

I don't know if I would call it sad. It's heartening to see how far she has come and what she has overcome. But heartfelt, moving, brave and inspirational: definitely!

I would endure it for myriad lifetimes

i agree- i don't know if i would call it sad either- i cried when i listened to it- i don't know if it was out of sadness or compassion or what- just sitting here thinking about her story has me teary eyed- when she was finished speaking and everyone clapped for her my heart soared for her also-

Listened to it.
It is one of a tough personal struggle
And her ability to overcome her problems.
Quite enjoyed it.
Thank you.

No, not sad - moving, inspiring, motivating, inviting us to reflect...
May we extend This Mind over the whole universe so that we and all beings together may attain maturity in Buddha's wisdom

It is really from her soul isn’t it? I profess to feeling weepy myself. I am sure she will make a great nun.

I really identify with her story. Similar things have happened to me, with the heroin scene.
It's all fun and games 'till someone loses an I.

Maybe the title was not fortunate, sorry.
My life is much easier and...I complain! When I was a child I suffered but but but not so much!
I do not appreciate what I have now.
