  2. This talk was offered by Thay on the sixth day of the Understanding Our Mind Retreat at Mahachulalongkorn University, Thailand, Wednesday, March 30th, 2011. When we die, where does our mind go? Here we practice listening to the sound of the bell, but in our daily life we don't have anyone to invite the bell, the bell we hear is people who scold us or admire us. How do I practice when people scold me or admire me? How do I deal with the emotions resulting from being treated not as well as my older brother? How do I practice to come back to myself, when I feel that I am lost?
