Faith is a Living Thing (Part 2)

Jack Benny Rehearsal with Junior Stars

We like to train in chanting, in walking, and in breathing. In medical school, there’s also training. We can train to be a doctor or an architect. We learn with the mind, the body, with everything. Transformation is part of training. Man is an animal, so if animals need to be trained, then man needs to be trained. Animals may be trained against their will. But we want to be trained to be happy.
