    Lama Lopsang and I were siting in the monastery dining hall watching  an exquisite sunset through the French doors leading to the forest.  I said “Lama, is what we think, just our projections on emptiness?”

    “Yes. What appears as phenomena is empty by itself.”

    “But when I look at nature, it is beautiful.”

    “Even Buddha saw beauty in nature. There is beauty, but when we try to grasp it, we move beyond what is appearing and it takes us into clinging.”

    Afterwards, I painted this sunset.
