conditions gathering

twice a week, when he is in residence, his holiness the karmapa receives the public and often gives a dharma talk at gyuto monastery here in dharamsala. during the audience held on november 5, when a friend of a friend had her moment to greet his holiness, she held out a barack obama pin. initially his holiness took it to be something he was supposed to bless, until she indicated it was a gift for him. when he looked closer and saw it was an obama pin, his holiness brightened noticeably, and accepted the gift with visible delight!

at that same audience, several european friends congratulated me on what our country has managed to do for itself in this election.

indeed, one feels there is a whole world of goodness waiting to arise from the conditions that are gathering now...
