Shinzen Young on teaching and the four quadrants of happiness

In the final part of this series Shinzen talks about fostering extraordinary happiness in others, which he calls teaching. Shinzen then talks about teaching from the subtle, explanatory, and explicit levels. Within the explicit level he distinguishes between the para-professional, the full-time professional, and within the professional category those teachers who can deal with the issue of sudden enlightenment experiences, and enlightenment experiences with a mixture of pathology - or DPDR. Within this "master" class there is a Buddha. Shinzen shares the traditional formulation of a Buddha, and how the next "Buddha" might be a team of people. He then does a review of his four quadrants of happiness.
