"* 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.

Wow. Just wow.
"What is inherent in you is presently active and presently functioning, and need not be sought after, need not be put in order, need not be practiced or proven.
All that is required is to trust it once and for all."
- Foyan, Instant Zen, pg. 23
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!
"Even if my body should be burnt to death in the fires of hell
I would endure it for myriad lifetimes
As your companion in practice" --- Gandavyuha Sutra
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-
i'm so sorry ... i don't know what the heck i was thinking when i said i wasn't sure if it was sad- of course it was sad! not all of it, but parts of
it certainly were- sheesh! i hate it when i do that! i wish her the best, that she takes care of herself- and has a safe journey-
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.
