  1. What a beautiful lesson, Maezen, thank you. When I get back to Houston, I will visit the Rothko chapel and think of you. I will also think of you when I visit Tibet this fall. 😉

    Much love and gratitude…

  2. Thank you Maezen for this teaching. The three teachings:do not deceive yourself, do not make excuses and take responsibility. It is not only to sit down, but to stand up and keep going, it all happens in the garden. It is all there, and in your life… So rich, so simple. _/\_

  3. Thank you to all who made this video possible for us to view. How lucky to sit in that chapel and hear such a gifted speaker.

    Maezen, Thank you for offering such a wonderful teaching and pointing the way. You capture the moment (past and present) so beautifully, so clearly. My jaw drops and my eyes open.

    Much love.
