Quotes from Chamtrul Rinpoche and other masters of Buddhism

Chamtrul Rinpoche

Sunday

 

Some people say that they are too busy to practice the Dharma. But if they want to, they can turn every aspect of their life to the path, no matter where they are, or what they are doing. It is OK to be busy. But be busy with the Dharma.

Someone who has acted carelessly,
But later becomes careful and attentive,
Is as beautiful as the bright moon emerging from the clouds.

The more you attempt to reject external phenomena, the more they will spring back to you. Hence, therefore, the importance of recognizing the empty nature of your thoughts and simply allowing them to dissolve.

Shantideva

Saturday

 

Those who wish to crush the many sorrows of existence,
Who wish to quell the pain of living beings,
Who wish to have experience of a myriad joys
Should never turn away from bodhicitta.

 

Should bodhicitta come to birth
In those who suffer, chained in prisons of samsara,
In that instant they are called the children of the Blissful One,
Revered by all the world, by gods and humankind.

 

For like the supreme substance of the alchemists,
It takes our impure flesh and makes of it
The body of a Buddha, jewel beyond all price.
Such is bodhicitta. Let us grasp it firmly!

 

Shantideva
