This is called purification. It is indis-pensable. One night, for example, feeling strung out and dehy-drated, but inspired after performing a few thousand prostra-tions that day, I had the following dream. I was an elderly Lama living in tight quarters with a group of eight to ten monks in their teens and twenties, who were my students.

There I rolled out a sleeping bag in the basement alongside a hundred others, and began a fourteen-day Insight Meditation retreat taught by an English activist named Christopher Titmuss.

Even after all these years, this stands out as the single most ridiculous bit of advice I have ever received. No one in recorded human history has solved the riddle of their own existence in five years, start to finish. So how is fixing such a finite horizon more practical than setting no limit?
