Mastery of the Mind

“The whole thrust of the Buddha’s teaching is to master the mind. Once you have mastered the mind, you will have mastery over your body and speech, and your suffering can only come to an end. If you leave the mind full of desires and emotions, then however perfect the actions of your body and the words you speak might seem to be, you are far from the path. Mastery of the mind is achieved through meditation – constant awareness of all your mental and physical activities.”

~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
