“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Mind and Life Photos

Some pleasing photos from the recent conference, “Ethics, Ecology, and Interdependence.” Note Thrangu Rinpoche and the 17th Karmapa. My teacher's brother was the guy who pretty much established neuroplasticity as a fact. His prefrontal cortex showed more than 500% above normal responses during meditation on nonconceptual compassion.

Where's Thrangu Tim? I didn't see him in there.
