Quotes from Chamtrul Rinpoche and other masters of Buddhism

Chamtrul Rinpoche

Sunday

 

For as long as your mind imprisons itself in cyclic existence, death will follow birth, and birth will follow death.

 

Chamtrul Rinpoche

Longchenpa

Monday

 

Through being partial towards our lama, lineage and practice, we believe we are upholding them.


But to praise our own side whilst disparaging others is the source of attachment and aversion.


'To give all this up' is my heart advice.

 

Longchenpa

Khunu Rinpoche

Tuesday

 

With bodhicitta one enjoys happiness. With bodhicitta one enjoys even sorrow. With bodhicitta one enjoys what is there. With bodhicitta one enjoys even what is not there.

 

It is because of bodhicitta that one gives up the pleasure of meditative concentration, and in order to relieve others of their suffering, goes down to the deepest hell as if into a pleasure park.

 

Khunu Rinpoche

Shabkar

Wednesday

 

It is present and transparent, utter openness,
Without outside, without inside -
An all pervasiveness
Without boundary and without direction.


The wide-open expanse of the view,
The true condition of the mind,
Is like the sky, like space:
Without center, without edge, without goal.

 

Shabkar

Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche

Thursday

 

Profound and tranquil, free from complexity,
Uncompounded luminous clarity,
Beyond the mind of conceptual ideas;
This is the depth of the mind of the Victorious Ones.


In this there is not a thing to be removed,
Nor anything that needs to be added.
It is merely the immaculate
Looking naturally at itself.

 

Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche

Gampopa

Friday

 

Life doesn't stay in place, even for just a moment.

 

Gampopa

Padmasambhava

Saturday

 

Without thinking that death will come, one will be absorbed in plans for the future. Then after having done the many and futile activities of this life, one will leave utterly empty-handed.

 

What a mistake! Why not practice now?

 

Padmasambhava
