Tibetan Buddhist meditation master and scholar
Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche
Teachings on the "Prevention of Negative Thinking and Suffering"

Saturday, December 6, 2003 at 9:00 PM (Pacific Time)

The teachings on the Prevention of Negative Thinking and Suffering by Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche will focus on seeing the source of suffering in our lives. Through being mindful of every instance and being aware of the inner-activity of our minds, we can ultimately eliminate negative thoughts and states of mind. This teaching will present the approaches and their application to prevent and transform negative thoughts. The teachings are the direct transmission of the teachings passed down through the unbroken lineage of realized masters. To get more information on the event or to submit questions for Khenpo Choga to answer during the teaching, please visit: http://www.dzogchenlineage.org/broadcast/

The Two Georges, Orwell and Bush: A dramatic reading of George Orwell's classic work 1984 interspersed with recent news clips from President Bush and others
100 years ago today, author and journalist George Orwell was born. We'll spend the hour hearing excerpts from his classic work 1984. The book introduced the terms "Big Brother," "thought police," "newspeak" and "doublethink." We'll also hear clips from President Bush, Attorney General John Ashcroft, Secretary of State Colin Powell, Fox New's Bill O'Relly, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and broadcast footage of Donald Rumsfeld meeting with Saddam Hussein in 1983.


From Moveon.org (Oct. 9, 2003):

Help President Bush: Sign the Affidavit
President Bush told the press on Tuesday that he doesn't "have any idea" whether the senior administration officials who blew a CIA operative's cover will ever be found. But if he just asked his staff to sign a legally binding affidavit confirming that they weren't involved, and referred anyone who wouldn't to the FBI, it's possible he could flush out the perpetrators in a day. To date, the President hasn't even discussed this matter with his staff.

MoveOn.org has already done the President's homework for him by writing the affidavit. Now let's show him how easy it is for innocent people to legally declare their innocence. Click the link below to sign the affidavit and send it to the President.  The process of elimination appears to be the only way to help the Administration find the culprit.

Sign The Affidavit
