Shinzen Young's Welcome to New Viewers

Nice introduction to Shinzen Young's teaching . . . from the teacher himself.
Shinzen extends his welcome to people who are new to his teachings and/or this YouTube channel. Shinzen shares that the mindfulness skill-set leads eventually to "getting over yourself and getting over the world", and "improving yourself and world". Ordinary experience can become utterly extraordinary resulting in the beatific vision, to use a Christian term. He then talks about his eclectic mix of influences which are utilized without religious doctrine or cultural trappings, and applied science-like to sensory experience. Filmed in Nov. 2009 at Mt. Carmel Spiritual Centre in Niagara Falls.
