Yes. It took me a long time to begin to understand something about the extent of the problem here.

Beautiful passage. The whole book is really worth reading, by the way. Somehow Needleman captures the essence of a precious quality of exchange. I think what's most amazing is the quality of Lobsang's tone in addressing this 9 year old as a being in her own right and not someone it's necessary to "speak down" to. I'm sure Logsang's response was made with full awareness that he was speaking to a child, but also another being in herself. So the content, the words, no doubt were chosen with this in mind [not too abstract or technical, for instance] while the tone was this other thing which Jacob captures so well, this authentic and real response to a whole being from another whole being. Really wonderful.
