Sorry about the 'between' strokes post here. I sat with this awhile. The meaning of refuge vows came to mind as did the intention of Bodhisattva vows ... and more. The more I lingered with it the more I came to predict the 'taste' that would emerge from it. Following that came the realization that the 'taste' was already 'here'.

Then came Chandrakirti: "Any position breeds a counter-position, and neither is valid in itself."

We will not escape our predispostions while exchanging in this. But we might by spending some time with 'Vajrasattva'.

I apologize to you and all gathered here for not cognizing this beforehand. To settle any doubt, I hold great respect for HH and many, many others working tirelessly for all beings.

Om svasti,
