This talk was given at the Glasgow Buddhist Centre in 2010.

Padmolka looks at the first section of Padmasambhava's Advice to The Three Fortunate Women from The Life and Liberation of Padmasambhava. She begins by saying a bit about Padmasambhava subduing the demons of Tibet and the circumstances around the time when this teaching is given.

Padmasambhava is asked for a short, practical teaching which can be learned by heart to help Queen Nang Chung to practice the Dharma and ultimately lead her to Buddhahood.

She then goes through the verse, pulling out it's themes and meaning.

Thanks for a great talk, Padmolka. I particularly liked the image of the empty house filling up with rain: it reminded me somewhat of Glasgow itself and the two wet summers I spent there! Along with the rain I was filled, a smidgen at least, by the teachings and Sangha I experienced in Glasgow. Thanks again. PS. Lovely to hear some voices I recognised: i.e. Les! :-)
