Irregularity: A technical issue on this DVD is causing the Module 2 show (How to Meditate) on DVD1 to return to the Menu screen after 1:06 minutes. The same happens on the Module 7 show (Refuge in the Three Jewels) on DVD2 after 1:18 minutes. All the other shows play correctly. This problem can be overcome simply by clicking the “Next Chapter” option at the beginning of these two shows or to fast-forward at these times and the video will resume playing normally.
