The monks begin this new phase with a homa, burning prayers to the devas. Afterwards Bodhinatha gave a talk about how to hold the perspective that you are your inner perfection and not your outer imperfections, by separating your awerness from that which it is aware of. He mentioned that one of the great things about Gurudeva's teachings is that they give practical ways to get there. Holding a daily vigil being one of them. Bodhinatha stressed the importance of holding a morning vigil, even if it is just 10 minutes long. He particularly mentioned youth, who often struggle to do so because of their busy lives.
