Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche

Tuesday

Padmasambhava

Wednesday

 

Always recognize the dreamlike qualities of life and reduce attachment and aversion. Practice good-heartedness toward all beings. Be loving and compassionate, no matter what others do to you. What they will do will not matter so much when you see it as a dream. The trick is to have positive intention during the dream. This is the essential point.

 

Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche

Thursday

Mingyur Rinpoche

Friday

 

The affairs of the world will go on forever. Do not delay the practice of meditation.
 

Milarepa

Discovering inner goodness only truly happens through meditation. You can discover your inner goodness intellectually of course, but it is just knowledge of what is possible.
