Download the summary
Save yourself time and download my one-pager of the episode instead of making your own notes.
Don't miss the part when Ama tells the story why the monastery bought him a punch-bag and what that taught him about dealing with anger.
Although I highly recommend keeping a pen and paper at hand, you may also just download mine!
