On Trump: Yep, the Germans have a word for what’s happening.
While we all watch Trump’s lousy attempt to forcefully prevent the transition of power in the world, one feels sadly reminded of German history. We literally got a word for what has been going on in the first days of his presidency: Gleichschaltung.
Bob Thurman on Buddhism
Bob Thurman is a cool dude (American Professor of Tibetan Buddhist studies, first American Buddhist monk in the Tibetan tradition and Uma Thurman’s father). A couple of years ago, I stumbled upon a beginner’s lecture on Buddhism on Youtube that I have listened to dozens of times over the years. There is something about his voice that just feels good to me. Since I liked the recording so much, I then converted it to MP3 as a precaution. It now seems to be deleted from YouTube, so I have uploaded it on SoundCloud: Bob Thurman on Buddhism.
Have an awesome weekend!
