Got to have a facebook profile. Have not found the video elsewhere. Robson, the Brazilian guy, is an acquaintance of mine.

Hi Dukkhanirodha

It looks good from the start of the video. Unfortunately, it just dies for me at 1.05.
I'm sure its a brilliant video.
kind regards

Ben
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Yes and there is obviously a sequel to these 6 min, but I don't know where it is to be found.

As a side note, the music is by Steve Reich, Electric Counterpoint Part 2; very beautifull.
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)
