Dear Karl, There was a part of this presentation that caused me to think of you :slight_smile: I wanted to draw your attention to it, as I think you may appreciate it on your journey into diminishing eye-sight.

It is the sermon about the Jataka Tale. It was part of the program for Australia (the link now takes you to the program that was for North America - but the presentation there is different. Perhaps @Snowbird might assist to locate the appropriate link.

It is quite long, and about how the Buddha came to become a Bodhisattva, and his practice of the perfections.

It was so beautiful :relieved:

In practicing the virtues of giving, he gave his eyes to another who was blind, so that they could see…

I won’t elaborate. The presenter was SO skilled and the material so sublime, that I was really moved.

Anyway, as I said, I thought of you :slight_smile:
And perhaps with @Snowbirds help, you might get the link to have a listen to this Dhamma offering :pray:

Added, I think it was the third item in the program - for aus, nz time zone.

:pray: Thank you, Viveka! The presentation is a live-stream which seems to have moved away from the past. However, I shall look forward to viewing recordings as they become available.

You have correctly assessed me as somewhat lost in the EBTs. Thank you for poking me into the present Dhamma. :laughing: :heart:
