King of the Empty Plain

Postby kirtu » Thu Mar 15, 2012 11:52 pm

At long last, I have a copy of Cyrus Stearn's essay on and translation of Tangtong Gyalpo's biography, King of the Empty Plain, The Tibetan Iron Bridge Builder Tangtong Gyalpo. Eagerly pouring through it as time permits ...... :twothumbsup:

"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

Great book, I have been dipping into for months - so many adventures he had! A wonderful bodhisattva!
Every time you recite Amita Buddha’s name, a ray of light shines through empty space. If you recite very sincerely, then this light fills up the universe, so that the energy of all worlds will be auspicious and harmonious.
