HHDL has a lot of practices,.. amazing man,.. I couldn't keep up with him at all. I read he does like 7 hours of practice in the morning. Even doing accumulations I never would do more than 5 hours straight. Knowing that,... how could you ever tell him your practices are too much and ask to reduce your commitments?

But HHDL is extraordinary and beyond that he is an emanation of Avalokiteshvara. Most people will never be able to keep up with him so it's an unfair comparison.

People have to practice within their means and continuously stretch their boundaries but only as their circumstances permit.

Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche
