Searching for a story I remember reading, 2/n

The last two days I was looking for a story I remembered reading about a student and a lama talking. Yesterday I looked for it again, skimming over Tracts of the Sun. I also checked Already Free briefly, but there is no index and it's ~300 pages if I recall correctly, so I didn't spend very long. I didn't find the story. I give up for now.
