Mindrolling – Raghu Markus – Ep. 18 – Life is Tough, Deal with It

Life is Tough

Life is Tough, Deal with It: David and Raghu investigate the unusual Shambala Sun cover story by Norman Fischer. Our mindrollers present their own version of how to deal with life – stop blaming people, the world is upside down-turn it over, everything is the path including your step-mother, overcome self-interest as in Dave’s fixation with a certain European sport and confusion is the Buddha- not to be confused by our guys’ continuing lifetime journey to awareness.

The image for this episode is that of the deity Mahakala, who is a defender of the dharma “truth” – one of his protective qualities is the power to overcome life’s struggles – and to eliminate one’s obstacles and impediments.
