Tibetan Buddhist Event

Dreamed that I was a Tibetan Buddhist monk at this big Tibetan Buddhist monastary. I was wearing gold and maroon robes. The were giving teachings on something called the "Ring System". I saw a big painting of Padmasambhava holding the Ring System scroll which showed that he approved of the teaching. Padmasambhava was smoking some kind of strangly curved pipe. It seemed that I was kind of a high ranking monk so I got to sit near the front during the teachings. There were lots of monks and lay people there and lots of activity.

Commentary: This dream reminded me of a movie I saw recently about when the Dalai Lama was going to give some teaching to many thousands of Buddhists in Bodh Gaya and in Austria.
