Looking for the Source of This Quotation

Postby sukhamanveti » Fri Jul 02, 2010 5:43 pm

Hello. :smile:

I am looking for the source of these well-known words of Guru Rinpoche:

"Although my view is higher than the sky,

"My respect for the cause and effect of actions is as fine as grains of flour."
*


I have seen several versions this important teaching quoted often, but I have never seen the title of the source text. This makes me wonder if the terma source is not a text, but a mind terma or a pure vision terma. On the other hand, maybe it simply appears in more than one text or in some long-forgotten location in the more than sixty volumes of terma texts. Does anyone know where it comes from?

Thank you in advance to the kind person with the elusive answer.

I have seen it in Guru Rinpoche's biography.
I forgot which one though, Zanglingma rediscovered by Nyang terton or the one by Orgyen Lingpa.
