In Eight Steps to Happiness Geshe-la says "'Self' and 'other' are relative terms, rather like 'this mountain' and 'that mountain ... 'This' and 'that' therefore depend upon our point of reference. This is also true of self and other. By climbing down the mountain of self, it is possible to ascend the mountain of other, and thereby cherish others as much as we presently cherish ourself."

Portugal Festival Website

In case you didn't see this, there 's a new website for the Fall Festival in Portugal with Geshe-la, which has lots of info about accommodations, etc. Deciding where you want to stay looks a bit complicated, so you may want to read it beforehand.

Note that registration opens Feb 25, but no time is specified yet.

Prayers for Ven Tharchin

A request from Tharpaland, and from me:

Gen Tharchin has had another fall last night and has broken his other hip. He is being well cared for in hospital and is having an operation tomorrow, Wednesday.

Please make strong prayers and dedications for a successful operation and for Gen Tharchin's full and speedy recovery.
