    Thank you Rinpoche for the first Q/A session. I agree with Yumma, the online Shedra is such a good way for all of us to be able to benefit so directly from the teachings and I too feel very grateful to everyone who is working hard to make it happen.

    Dear Rinpoche

    What would be the main differences between our mindstream and that of a realised Boddhisattva? Does a realised Boddhisattva still occasionally make mistakes due to the complexity of situations and being unable to always correctly predict the outcome?

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you very much for your answers. It helped me to understand the matter of motivation and the importance of keeping it high! I’m really enjoying to take part and to have this opportunity of ask questions… and specially to be answered.
