    Everyone does not have the financial resources or free time to travel long distances to a qualified teacher and sit among the crowd at very expensive retreats.
    Such people have no less right to respectfully approach these teachings than those blessed with the ability to follow the traditional route.
    Thank you for making them available.
    The Dharma protectors will protect the teachings and those who respectfully seek.
