Hey, gonna take a self-imposed posting break for a bit, I wanted to thank all the people that have been so great about answering my questions recently, especially those that have gone out of their way to answer my consistent (ly annoying) Vajrayana questions.. ya know who you are!!
"Just as a lotus does not grow out of a well-levelled soil but from the mire, in the same way the awakening mind
is not born in the hearts of disciples in whom the moisture of attachment has dried up. It grows instead in the hearts of ordinary sentient beings who possess in full the fetters of bondage." -Se Chilbu Choki Gyaltsen
