Hi Barry!

Sorry, my comment is childish: "Man Gong"! What a superhero name! Sidekick could be "Boy Gong" or "Girl Gong"!

I have to check the video sometimes when I have some more time. Man Gong's teachings seems to be pretty interesting!

Thank you for your efforts! I hope you and your family are all doing ok!

Peace, my brother in Dharma!



There's is something so infinitely soothing about this teaching. Maybe it's my own childishness but I resonate deeply with the sense our true face never disappearing. Thank you for this week, Barry. It has been very gentle and touching.

Barry, thanks for these posts. I definitely have to investigate Man Gong further.
