It is hard ...

May all who went beyond found a peaceful place,

All is perfect, I cannot pretend it's the other way,
May this disaster stick Chinese and Tibetan together,
May the world turn his head on them,
May a new dawn rise on Tibet

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

"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."
