Quotes from Chamtrul Rinpoche and other masters of Buddhism

Chamtrul Rinpoche

Sunday

 

The world tells you to follow your dreams.
But Buddhism will tell you to wake up.

 

Chamtrul Rinpoche

Chatral Rinpoche

Monday

 

If you lack the wealth of contentment in your mind,
You will think that you need all kinds of useless things,
And you will end up even worse than an ordinary person,
Because you won’t manage even a single session of practice.
So set your mind on freedom from the need for anything at all.

 

Chatral Rinpoche

The analyses in this treatise are not given
Out of an excessive fondness for debate.
It is not our fault if, in the course of this teaching,

Other philosophical systems come to be destroyed.
