Although many individuals in this age appear to be merely indulging their worldly desires, one does not have the capacity to judge them, so it is best to train in pure vision.

Is it difficult to learn to read Tibetan?

It looks incredibly complex. Not because it's an abiguda, but because of the extra "r"s and stuff, and how some sounds appear but aren't explicitly in existence. What comes immediately to mind is say ’Bras-spung and Bkra-shis-lhun-po for Drebung and Tashilhümpo respectively.


What is the verb conjugation and noun declension like? Complex, like Sanskrit or Latin, or more simple?

"Absolute Truth is not an object of analytical discourse or great discriminating wisdom,
It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified."
- (Kyabje Bokar Rinpoche, from his summary of "The Ocean of Definitive Meaning")
