The monk clearly spelled out the pitfalls of being attached to this "dream" we are in.
He pointed out movies as a particular danger for getting "caught up" emotionally and not remaining aloof and detached.
Hey I can dig that!
Now here's the fun part (my smart-ass side)...when the service was over I noticed that a brochure featured an "inspirational movie night" in two nights featuring the life of Yogananda.
I was so tempted to go over to the monk, point to the brochure, and ask him, "Remain detached from every movie including this one?"
Where there are followings you will find "attachment"...just sayin'
