There are many powerful gods and forces in the world today which, because they
are still controlled by contaminated actions and disturbing emotions, remain, like
ourselves, within the prison of cyclic existence.
Influenced by sources of suffering they
perform harmful actions which express their hostility and desire. No matter how powerful
these gods and forces are, they are incapable of protecting others from suffering and
fear. If you are sinking in a swamp yourself, you’re not in a position to rescue anyone

"Hi Durga Devi. Thanks for putting this wonderful course together. I love how you are doing this in little segnments. I do typically watch a few at a time versus one per day. The way you state, discuss and restate the teaching is a nice format. I have been studying the Dali Lama's stages of meditation; this is a wonderful compliment to what I am learning there."
