Hi Ratnavyuha,

I am very glad to hear from you and have the chance to listen to your talk. I have listened to it twice.

Yesterday I was reading the Lokavipatti Sutta from Vajragupta’s book. When I was reflecting on “he does not welcome the arisen gain, or rebel against the arisen loss…”, I was trying to imagine what kind of state he might be. A thought came to my mind, “should this lead to indifference? ” As recently I have been becoming careful of a tendency to not looking after life, I was telling myself that I could let myself guided by the precepts. Here in your talk, I am happy indeed to hear what you try to practise, it becomes a bit clearer to me how to benefit from the teachings of the eight world winds. I am thinking of listening to your talk more carefully and reflect on them later.

By the way, my slogans are: “cherishing Yinhua”, “taking care of Yinhua”. :)
