Hello Dalai

The lama said, “That sounds cool.”

I nodded and Bethany said, “That reminds me. The Buddha talks about the Five Aggregates as form, feeling, perception, volition and consciousness. Sometimes I feel fat even though I know I’m not. Is that feeling or perception?”

The lama said, “I have no idea but you’re definitely not fat.” Then we all laughed because she wasn’t.
