His Holiness answers questions about whether it is proper for monks to receive teachings from women, whether students may study Tibetan language from a devotee of the controversial Shugden spirit, why mental transformation is not apparent despite faithful morning meditation practice, and what practices are recommended for devotees in addition to fervent prayers for His Holinessâ long life. His Holiness continues his commentary on Kamalashilaâs text by discussing the mind of ultimate bodhicitta, its basis in the combined meditations of calm abiding and special insight, and the requisites for developing that meditation practice.
