I understood so little that I can't offer any comments on the talk, at all.

There's a saying in Vajrayana which I think came from the mahasiddha Tilopa and was spoken to his Dharma student Tilopa, and very simply, it goes something like this :

"You can't understand the nature of mind from words, you need to recognize it yourself."

Or "The meaning of the words doesn't show the meaning of the meaning".

Therefore it's of benefit to keep patiently meditating and practising on a daily basis, even if its just 10mins to begin with.
