Approaching the Guru

Why do we need devotion ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/fmpmy Why do we need devotion? Generally speaking, we need devotion because we need enlightenment. In one way, enlightenment can be understood very simply as a release from certain obsessions and hang-ups. Until we are free from these obsessions and habits, we will wander endlessly in samsara, going through all sorts of anxiety, suffering, and so on. – Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche source…

Not a big deal ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/t0w04 Renunciation mind is very simple in a way: we have renunciation mind when we realise that all this is not a big deal. Somebody steps on your toe – what’s the big deal? The more we get used to this notion, the more we have renunciation mind. Renunciation somehow has this connotation of giving something up. But it is like the example of the mirage. You can’t give up the water because there is none; it is only a mirage…

For enlightenment ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/qjce1 If you're practising Dharma, you practise it for enlightenment. Not for rights, not for freedom, not for justice, not for healing, not for getting better in a worldly way. – Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche source: http://www.siddharthasintent.org/gentle/GV11.htm

Conditioning ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/zmmok Ultimately, in order to attain enlightenment, we must exhaust all our karma, both good and bad, not merely collect as much good karma as we can and get rid of the bad. Karma is by nature conditioning, and since all our activities are conditioned by karma, they can only be a direct contradiction to our independence. Therefore, it is not possible for any of us to be truly independent. The point of thinking about cause…

The linear thing ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/jzwcs Order, the linear thing, is a human concept. – Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche source: http://dzongsar.justdharma.com/2012/06/19/the-linear-thing/

See you later ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/2iuej See you later. We don’t know. Maybe there is no later. – Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche source: http://dzongsar.justdharma.com/2011/01/03/see-you-later/

Four seals ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/d5irm If you cannot accept that all compounded or fabricated things are impermanent, if you believe that there is some essential substance or concept that is permanent, then you are not a Buddhist. If you cannot accept that all emotions are pain, if you believe that actually some emotions are purely pleasurable, then you are not a Buddhist. If you cannot accept that all phenomena are illusory and empty, if you believe…

No substitute for being guided by a guru ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/wktev Sadly, in recent years, the word guru has all but lost its original meaning. The deluded beings of this time are greedy for everything pure and stainless, so they grab at the principle of the guru, spoil it, reject it and then move on to another perfect treasure to lay waste. It has happened far too often and as a result gurus are now mistrusted in the modern world and often ridiculed in…

Products and parts ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/jwf86 When any two components or more come together, a new phenomenon emerges - nails and wood become a table; water and leaves become tea; fear, devotion, and a savior become God. This end product doesnt have an existence independent of its parts. – Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche from the book "What Makes You Not a Buddhist" ISBN: 978-1590305706…

Without the personal advice of Buddha ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/9lcvh Without the personal advice of Buddha, our only option is to rely on the existing generalisations provided by the dharma that are themselves the result of centuries of guesswork. Not very encouraging news in some ways, but do not despair. This guesswork may be hundreds of years old, but it was originally developed by some of the greatest scholars and practitioners ever to have walked this earth…
