Mind filled with faith ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/mno69 If you waste your life now on endless minor tasks, you can be sure that at the time of death you will weep with regret and be stricken with intense anxiety, like a thief who has just been thrown into jail and anxiously anticipates his punishment.

We should practise the exchange of happiness and suffering without expecting any reward.

We…

Seeing clearly how deceiving the ways of the world are ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/tl25a Once you have understood the union of emptiness and the dependent arising of phenomena, you will see clearly how deluded and deceiving the ways of the world really are, and, like an old man forced to play children’s games, you will find them very tiresome. When you have realized the utter foolishness of spending your life attached to friends and scheming to subdue your enemies and…

The futility of ordinary pursuits ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/ynu60 Why would you invest all that energy on those plans for the future if you were not somehow blindly convinced that you are still sure to be here in this world for a long time to come? The great practitioners of the past described themselves as "yogis with the thought of impermanence implanted firmly in their hearts." They saw clearly the futility of ordinary pursuits. Their minds were entirely turned…

Simply the mind itself ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/kof7n When looking into the nature of mind, don’t expect to gain some exceptionally high or profound realization, or to see anything new. Nor should you hesitate or doubt your ability to meditate. Just trust that the nature of mind is simply the mind itself left in an unaltered state, and do all that you can to sustain this, without distraction, at all times, during and between the meditation sessions. Don’t expect to…

But his good fortune has nothing to compare with human life, which offers us something far more precious than any gold and precious stones-the chance to reflect on and practice the Dharma and give meaning to our lives. The treasures we have to choose from are the various teachings offered…

A deep feeling of renunciation ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/qi3c2 A prisoner locked in jail thinks all the time about different ways of getting free — how he might climb over the walls, ask powerful people to intervene, or raise money to bribe someone.
