It is entirely up to us ~ Ribur Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/weh50  Following the self-cherishing mind is the source of all our suffering. We need to identify that self-cherishing mind as a demon taking over our mind and make a strong determination with very strong mindfulness, thinking, “I’m going to get rid of it.” With this determination, make a request to the guru to bless us and help us get rid of egoism, self-cherishing, and the obsession with self and with me-first.

The pure motivation of bodhicitta ~ Lama Tsongkhapa http://justdharma.com/s/fq3d6  If renunciation is not embraced  By the pure motivation of bodhicitta,  It will not become a cause for the perfect bliss of unsurpassed awakening,  So the wise should generate supreme bodhicitta.    Beings are swept along by the powerful current of the four rivers,  Tightly bound by the chains of their karma, so difficult to undo,  Ensnared within the iron trap of their self-grasping,  And enshrouded in the…

The fruit of ultimate perfection ~ Ling Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/mxwz7  You should try to meditate regularly on death and impermanence and thus become a spiritual practitioner of initial scope.

A great cosmic song ~ 2nd Dalai Lama http://justdharma.com/s/sd65k  The experience of the tantric yogi is like this:  The outer world is seen as a sacred mandala circle,  And all living beings seen as divine beings.  All experiences become transformed  Into blissful primordial awareness;  And all of one's actions become spiritual,  Regardless of how they conventionally appear.

Plenty of space for thoughts and emotions ~ Lama Yeshe http://justdharma.com/s/yvhdx  We should train ourselves not to become engrossed in any of the thoughts continuously arising in our mind.

The phenomena that we see and observe around us can go from good to bad, or bad to good, depending on various causes and conditions. Many phenomena cannot be said to be inherently good or bad; they are better or worse, tall or short, beautiful or ugly, only by comparison, not…
