So nice to read your response, Susan. And so wonderful to hear of your work at SQ. Perhaps it will also please you to know I have a friend who was released long, long ago from SQ and neverreturned,he is doing well, happy, and productive --- still quite the "tough guy" but a good person nontheless.
Thank you Stephen! I love that you mentioned Milarepa.
Throughout my 5 years now on the path of chaplaincy, my bf (who is Tibetan) has patiently and kindly offered support. However, after about 6 months into my internship at SQ I could tell he was uncomfortable with me going there. He made a few comments questioning why I am there, what am I doing, how long do I have to keep going in, etc. One day one of my supes there gave me a beautiful photo tryptych of 3 of the inmates we work with in meditation. I showed it to K. who suddenly understood-he took a long silent look at the photos and said "oh. I see! It is like Jetsun Mila!" I said YES! This is beautiful dharma work K, and yes, what these guys are doing is very much like Jetsun Mila! So-thanks.
