Here's a talk by the wonderful Suvarnaprabha given at a meeting of the San Francisco Gay Buddhist Fellowship just after the U.S. election of 2008. Tempering the general delight at Barack Obama's win was the knowledge that the people of California had voted to outlaw gay marriage, reversing the then current law. Suvarnaprabha's talk is perfectly weighted to the context and the time, looking at the 'perfection of patience', one of the training principles of the Bodhisattva and its application in our own challenging spiritual lives.
Talk given at San Francisco Buddhist Center, November 2008
