Phenomena Are Unreliable

“Phenomena or experiences – they are like mist; they will fade away. A practitioner who spends time practicing in seclusion is certain to witness many kinds of phenomena and has many different experiences, but the phenomena or experiences are as unreliable as rainbows – if you run after them, you will be deceived. When true realization dawns in one’s mind, it is like the king of mountains, Mount Meru, which no wind can shake.”

~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
