Hostility Is A Deluded Form of Perception

“It is crucial to develop compassion, particularly for those who dislike you. It might be difficult at first, but you will never attain enlightenment as long as you continue to feel ill-will toward them. To feel hostility toward enemies and affection toward friends is nothing but a deluded form of perception. If you train your mind to recognize everything as insubstantial like a dream, hostility toward enemies will lose its meaning entirely.”

~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
