One day, Bamboo suddenly became listless, and was immediately taken in for examination. Radiology revealed a large tumor that had been with her since birth, and it was only then that we understood the eating issue: she had been "feeding" a tumor her entire life. She died within a matter of hours. Because rabbits are subject to the stress of predators, they often do not outwardly show signs of illness until it is too late to help them, and that was the case with Bamboo.
"The very path you are given is the hindrance.
We love our theology. We love our ideas.
Buddhism is a path of *undoing*.
Removing the dirt is enlightenment.
We do not gain anything.
We *lose everything*."
- Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche
