FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL BEINGS

Christina Lundberg, 2012  This film is a beautiful journey in company of the great heart of Garchen Rinpoche: suffering with him through his youthful struggle and bravely resisting the Chinese invasion and genocidal actions in Tibet, then being inspired by his great practice, especially of “give-and-take” meditation—sending love and happiness to all beings. It is a huge blessing just to see the existence of such a great being, and this lovely film shares that with us. It is what the Tibetans call a tongdrol, something that liberates just by being seen! -- Robert Thurman:

Lecture/Seminar The Sexy Female: Is Bright Egg Colour Sexually Selected? 2013-02-27 19:30:00
Description

Victoria Natural History Society
BIRDERS NIGHT
 
Much of the amazing natural variety of ornamentation in birds is shaped by sexual selection. Although most research has focused on the effect of female preference on flashy male ornamentation, male preference also has the potential to shape colorful female traits such as plumage and egg colour. The results of a field study on Mountain Bluebirds of the Caribou Plateau are the topic of this presentation by UNBC graduate student Jeannine Randall. Join Jeannine as she discusses her research on the influence of bright egg colour on male investment in breeding attempts.
