We walked together to Rinpoche's house, also at Camp 2. Someone welcomed us in, accompanied us to a room on the first floor, and told us to sit and wait until called. Wanting to capture the architecture around me, I took a couple of pictures from the window of Rinpoche's house.
Visited Kenshur Tulku (the reincarnation of Kenshur Rinpoche). Pema Gyaltsen Rinpoche. Called at cyber cafe. Emailed Mary. Spent a lot of time talking to P. She asked me to chose a colour for her dress. I was touched by her involving me. Kenshur Rinpoche is 21 yrs old, in eighth year of study. He has a great luminosity. Choenzey is still with him.
Received some mosquito bites. Could not practice tai chi. John and I discussed what is the object of focus for realizing emptiness. Discussed self and other. John referred to Lamrim Chenmo and example of yellow and blue. If self and other were like yellow and blue then distinct and separate. Fixed. Margaret has Dalai Lama's Universe in a Single Atom. I said I would send her details of Damasio's book. Geshe Thinley explained object of meditation to realise emptiness. [from Alan's travel diary]
