On the Transitional Life Care Program (TLC)

April 29, 2017

How many years have we struggled, here and there, trying to establish the dharma, trying to teach, trying to learn? It sounds like this program, Transitional Life Care (TLC), is really trying to do that. It is for the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha; it is for the benefit of all beings. I think it’s a good idea, help everybody open their eyes! I think you guys need to wake up. You are going to die, it doesn’t matter who you are. Do you understand that? We need to think about that, more than hanging out with our eyes closed for years, pretending we will never die.

Others are going to die, it doesn’t matter who they are or if they want to die or don’t want to die, or if you want them to die or don’t want them to die.

It’s going to happen!
