Quotes from Chamtrul Rinpoche and other masters of Buddhism

Chamtrul Rinpoche



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 okay to be busy. But be busy with the Dharma.


Chamtrul Rinpoche

Jigme Phuntsok Rinpoche



We should regard everyone being equal and treat them wholeheartedly with compassion, no matter if they are high, middle, or low in their social status.


His Holiness Jigme Phuntsok Rinpoche




The best spiritual friend is one who attacks your hidden faults.

The best instructions are the ones that hit those faults.



Akong Rinpoche



The Buddhist principle is to be everybody's friend, not to have any enemy.


Akong Rinpoche




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



Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche



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.


Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche




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!
