Whatever Is Happening

“The practice of dharma is like exercising – you carefully follow a course of training. For example, if you are in the military, you train every day. In the same way, with the dharma, you have to train your mind daily. Not just to relax but to relate to whatever is happening around you. You integrate your practice with whatever conditions you meet, so that you are not carried away by them.”

~ 17th Karmapa
