Dzongsar Khyentse on relationships

Postby heart » Sat Sep 08, 2012 10:48 am

We are all here to help each other go through this, whatever it is.
~Kurt Vonnegut

"To reject practice by saying, 'it is conceptual!' is the path of fools. A tendency of the inexperienced and something to be avoided."
- Longchenpa

"Even though you have recognized your essence, if you do not get accustomed to it,
You will be carried away by the enemy of thoughts, like a small child in a battle field.
So long as you are not free from the limitations of accepting and rejecting,
That long will you not recognize the view of the innermost secret heart-essence."

-Longchenpa

The Guru comes in many forms of manifestations.....

Thank you for posting, Magnus. :namaste:
‘View like the sky’ means that nothing is held onto in any way whatsoever. You are not stuck anywhere at all. In other words, there is no discrimination as to what to accept and what to reject; no line is drawn separating one thing from another. ‘Conduct as fine as barley flour’ means that there is good and evil, and one needs to differentiate between the two. Give up negative deeds; practice the Dharma. In your behaviour, in your conduct, it is necessary to accept and reject.” Guru Rinpoche

I watched the longer talk awhile ago but did not there was a Q&A section until today.

Thanks for posting.
I am well aware of my idiocy. I am also very aware that you too are an idiot. Therein lies our mutuality.

Yes. Joyful fresh Dharma for directly use. :smile:
