Thank you, Puerhan! Happy to walk together with you...


Wild behavior - the classic MO of the mahasiddha (crazy wisdom) lineages I practice under. Somehow I really connect to "bad" behavior - LOL! Have you noticed?

As (presently) Four Precepts Laywoman, sure, I'll take Four Precepts Enlightenment! Bring it! Sweeeet!

Thanks, Barry!

Dear, dear Alice - you already have Complete Attainment! Sweeeet!
