When We Are Able

“How to know we have attained enlightenment? When we are able to care for others as much as we now care of ourselves, and ignore ourselves to the same extent that we now ignore others.”

~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

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

Experience Is Empty

“The relationship between emptiness and experience isn’t so simple or rather it’s so simple that it’s easy to miss.”

~ Mingyur Rinpoche
