Prepare Yourself For Death

“Even in times of peace, a nation remains ready to respond to war. In the same way, you must stay on the alert, and prepare yourself for death by practicing the Dharma. Like an eternal harvest, it will keep you supplied with provisions for the life to come and will be the very basis of your future wellbeing.”

~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

“We may set the bar for ourselves as high as working for the benefit of all sentient beings, but it doesn’t mean we are going to accomplish it all at once. It’s more a matter of dealing with what’s directly in front of you, in terms of the happiness and suffering that you – and the people you are connected with – are going through.”

~ 17th Karmapa
