I dream to try it again but I cannot find Bamboo root anywhere on the internet or here in Denmark. (Photo: Bamboo Garden at Hokokuji Temple in Kamakura, Japan)

"My advice to you is not to undertake the spiritual path. It is too difficult, too long, and is too demanding. I suggest you ask for your money back, and go home. This is not a picnic. It is really going to ask everything of you. So, it is best not to begin. However, if you do begin, it is best to finish." --Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche
