hold eternity in the palm of your hand
annette fry
01:07:32
I think it is about the intensity of the experience
Alex M
01:07:39
There was an interesting discussion in our group about how different people learn differently - the myth and symbolism stuff really turns me off, and I'd rather someone just said straight out what they meant, whereas others were saying they find it much easier to remember things, and messages stick with them a lot better, when there's lots of stories and visual symbols
Paul Bonett
01:08:39
Can you say anything about the language/symbols and mythical nature of dreams? Any correlation between that internal journey and that of understanding more about one’s Buddha nature through looking at dreams and how they expose ignored parts of the personality? Sorry such a long
Jude
01:09:35
Q. Please can you say something about the other Buddhas before Shakyamuni?
Jess
01:09:44
Thank you :)
Aoife
01:09:58
Q. Any tips for how to engage with previous dreams that emerge during meditation practice?
Alex M
01:10:00
Q I was a bit thrown by the idea that 'our' buddha wasn't the first buddha. Are there thought to be lots of buddhas before 'ours'?
Lisa C
01:11:10
Really enjoyed your explanation. Can you explain why timelessness is so important?
Lu Liu
01:18:16
Also sounds a lot like Milarepa and his demons!
Paul Bonett

Western version of Tara. Why not? Lovely
Maria Vitanova
01:21:28
Paramabandhu, I really enjoy your way of going about storytelling as well as explaining things and answering questions. I really appreciate your openness and authentic radiance. makes you such a relatable character! :D thank you!
Paul Bonett
01:22:05
That’s super. I look at my dreams in a similar vein and find them a very valuable part of my path
jessica sun

Thank you. That's much clearer now
annette fry

so as we are being taught does that mean there is never a possibility of becoming enlightened,
Anna H

Thank you for this afternoons session. And to the breakout group I was in, you were all so articulate, & expansive I really enjoyed listening to you!
Maria Vitanova
01:34:25
for me timelessness is important to put things into perspective. I already know all the things I am "going to" learn in the future, the past also loses a bit of its weight. makes infinity accessible

Thank you Paramabandhu and the whole team. I love the idea of the Buddha eternally preaching the Lotus Sutra on Vultures peak. I have really enjoyed these afternoon sessions with you and everyone on retreat. Most grateful. Much love.
