Auto-Generated Transcript

this is it somebody asked me about like you know
didn't really say there's where with this system to like if you're enlightened you know it
or how do you know if you are
if you're if you're in for it if you're in the process of liberating all beings how do you know that you're in the process of liberating all beings they didn't really say those things but something like that people often ask how do i know

one of art
things that we chose to send center has a lions have been like when buddhas are truly buddha's they don't necessarily think their bridges but they are buddhists
one translation says when buddhas are truly as they do not think that their borders
i like the kind of i kind of go with not necessarily in other words i think a border couldn't i think i'm a buddha just like you can avoid i can do it too
glad think you're a buddha head
how to go

but at the same time they don't necessarily think they're buddha nor fact they don't necessarily ever think they're buddha but if you go up to him in you say hello my name's rob who are you are you buddha and am i say haha
as matter of fact to him i have never thought of it before but now that you mentioned it yeah
okay now what i might be doing what sounds like yelling it my yelling now
okay i right

so the same goes for bodhisattvas
they don't necessarily think i'm a bodhisattva
do they wanna be a bodhisattva yes
it gives it he said you do you aspire to be a bodhisattva and they might say well it's kind of personal
but yes i do aspire to be a bodhisattva
are you and they might go boy i don't know
and they might say yes
but an actual somebody who is i wouldn't say an actual body so somebody who is so much into it that people think that other people think their body surface
what does happen sometimes people say well there's a bodhisattva living over there
those kind of people who a lot of people think all they're so inspiring their bodies out for practices so great
i think they rarely think i'm a bawdy sondra
even though they're doing bodhisattva work
in in a really inspiring way and they they themselves are inspired to do it and they're so inspired when they do it's just great
but they don't they're busy you know they're busy listening to people cry they're listening the cries of the world are busy listening to all of the cries it's nice i could they have no time to think i'm i'm already sad fuck but anyway they're very fully engaged and taking care of a lot of so
duff and so you know they don't necessarily go i'm i'm already sad the or something
but maybe they do once in awhile
i myself to tell the truth almost never think i'm a bodhisattva but i often think i wanna be one i often think i wanna be one i really do and i feel good about that by will i am i don't think that very often but i could
i just said it i could think it i did you know it's not that big a deal now he's also want to mention is another parallel example which i just gave
when people do a triple triple axel you know triple axel is it's a figure skating thing
when they do it if you ask them afterwards not during don't talk to him when during
but after they fly in the air and do this thing and then land on their one skate with you know
you asked later what were you thinking about when you are spinning through
the universe but we were thinking when the universe was spinning around you there are actually still and everything in the universe was going around them and we were enjoying the ride watching
but the whole universe was pivoting on them while they're doing this thing
the what i've heard as they say i don't have a they don't even need the can even say i wasn't thinking of anything they just say i
i don't know
before they went into it they think okay i'm going to do it here we go let's good luck kid
in a skating fast getting going fast when i nailed an i leave the world of thinking about being a bodhisattva and they just do it
one hundred percent and there's no space lab probably for i'm going up to plaque whole this is a pretty good one i think i might get a ten on this one they don't have time for that unless there's really really good so good at they can like and have conversation hi mom when they're spinning
it but i never seen that or heard about that but they're so good that they can wave in the me the then
all this there is a triple axel that's what's there
and all there isn't a body sought for really is a sought for there's not like somebody out there watching the body sound fun
except the whole universe is watching the bodyshop for dads out there the whole universe is spinning around the bodhisattva so i just saw him i mentioned that different case you want to ever be a body cipher
i would like to do a ceremony now
kind of an unusual ceremony isn't it's a usual ceremony but i'd like to do it a different way it's called a well-being ceremony
and i'd like to undo the chant as usual
and then after the chat we dedicate the merit of our chat
some people
for their well being
okay but innis said this this time of doing it i'm gonna say a couple of names

the by a proximal you know a couple like approximately two
and then i invite you to do a triple axel
and say somebody else's name if you want to
and but be careful when you do it so you don't interrupt somebody else
gay and just say one name it for okay just one name and then if you want to see another one it can see another one after giving somebody else a chance
okay so that's the age that the unusual way of doing it that i'd like to do today
what do you think of that are you i have great idea any other comments
okay all right so now i'm in a introduced a chat

kind of like a flip at the end of his monologue at the beginning of flip and and go on to kind of like a splits on the floor and then in one time he did it and didn't get up
then he retired from that anyway keep he did this
monologue to begin and kind like johnny carson used to do or whatever
