Practitioners and adverse circumstances ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/t9l4p  It is not when things go well that you can judge a true practitioner.

Transient precious human body ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/c7raq  This precious human body, supreme instrument though it is for the attainment of enlightenment, is itself a transient phenomenon. No one knows when, or how, death will come. Bubbles form on the surface of the water, but the next instant they are gone; they do not stay. It is just the same with this precious human body that we have managed to find. We take all the time in the world before engaging in…

Sole father ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/41ewo  The ultimate teacher, the absolute, is never separate from us,  Yet immature beings, not recognizing this,   look outside and seek him far away,  Sole father, with your immense love   you have shown me my own wealth;  I, who was a pauper,  constantly feel your presence in the depth of my heart.  – Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche  quoted in the book "In the Presence of Masters: Wisdom from 30 Contemporary Tibetan Buddhist Teachers"…

Look constantly into the mirror of your mind ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/pk23u  All difficulties come from not thinking of others.

When true realization dawns in one's mind ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/ck99j  Experiences are like mist: they will fade away. Practitioners who spend their time practicing in seclusion are certain to have many different experiences, but these experiences are very unreliable. As it is said, experiences are like rainbows, but the great meditator who runs after them like a child will be deceived. We may occasionally have flashes of clairvoyance, seeing things we cannot…

You have received them from an authentic teacher and are ready to put them into practise. Rather than frittering your life away in futile pursuits, should you not marvel at your good fortune and concentrate all your efforts on doing just that, without losing so much as an instant?  –…

Just like the wind moving through the empty sky ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/sdo7g  There is no emotion that you cannot be rid of, because emotions are simply thoughts, and thoughts are just like the wind moving through the empty sky. There is nothing to them.  – Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche  from the book "The Heart of Compassion: The Thirty-seven Verses on the Practice of a Bodhisattva" ISBN: 978-1590304570…

The only thing that is really worth doing ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/lmvwm  Unless you have made a clear decision to turn your back on samsara, then however many prayers you recite, however much you meditate, however many years you remain in retreat, it will all be in vain. You may have a long life, but it will be without essence. You may accumulate great wealth, but it will be meaningless. The only thing that is really worth doing is to get steadily closer to…
