Spiritual Friends

Spending your time with true spiritual friends will fill you with love for all beings, and help you to see how negative attachments and hatred are.

Being with such friends,
and following their example will naturally imbue you with their good qualities,
just as all the birds flying around the golden mountain are bathed in it’s golden light.

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

Practice the Dharma

In the midst of clouds of impermanence and illusion,
dances the lightning of life.

Can you say you won’t die tomorrow?
Practice the Dharma.
Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

The view

Once you have the View,
although the delusory perceptions of samsara may arise in your mind,
you will be like the sky; when a rainbow appears in front of it,
it’s not particularly flattered, and when the clouds appear it’s not particularly disappointed either.

There is a deep sense of contentment.
You chuckle from inside as you see the facade of samsara and nirvana; the view will keep you constantly amused,
with a little inner smile bubbling away all the time.

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
