  1. In his TEDx talk, he will share a teaching from the oldest printed book in the world—the Diamond Cutter Sutra—which helps us get everything we want in life, in a way which also helps the entire world. We will be learning an ancient method known as the Four Steps, which can be applied to five different goals: financial independence for the rest of our life; great personal and professional relationships; vibrant health and energy; a clear, happy, and focused mind—and most importantly, how we can use all these to find out why we came into this world, and how we can live a life of great purpose and meaning.

    Geshe Michael Roach is a Princeton University graduate who spent 25 years in a Tibetan monastery and is the first American to be awarded the degree of Geshe, or Master of Buddhism. He utilized his monastery training to help build a major New York corporation which reached $250 million in annual sales, and was sold to super-investor Warren Buffett in 2009. Michael used a large portion of his business profits, and support from companies like Hewlett Packard, to found a 25-year effort to train and pay Tibetan refugees to input thousands of their endangered ancient books and make them available online for free.

  2. Hi,

    Firstly let me apologise to you as I know this is not the best way to reach you (contact form marketing). I am at my wits end to generate more income to provide for my wife and children and this is a legal (and I hope to make up to you by providing free educational value)

    Like many others, the pandemic has hit me hard and I lost my job. Now I am doing what I can in between jobs and experimenting with different ways to make money from the internet.

    I chanced upon Binance.com (https://bit.ly/3jLZLrm) and started promoting my Binance.com affiliate links to my friends and online. When you introduce your friends to Binance, you get a LIFETIME commission everytime they trade in Binance!

    You do need a large number of affiliates to make things work. I was lucky to sign up 3 friends who put in USD$10,000 each and depending from their trade volume, I made an extra USD$1000 to $5000 per month PASSIVELY.

    As such, you do not need to put any money of your own into Binance, you can also make money by referring Binance to your friends and associates! -> https://bit.ly/3jLZLrm (my Binance affiliate link)
