Teacher and their advices, thoughts and wishes

You may possess the power and force of a world ruler, but unless you gain mastery over your mind, when the time of death arrives, you still haven’t attained the power of freedom.

As we have already seen, reversing the attitude of not wanting to suffer is the whole basis for transforming suffering into our spiritual path. This is because we simply won’t be able to turn suffering into the path as long as anxiety and irritation continue to eat away at our confidence and disturb our mind.

The more we arrive at actually transforming suffering into the path, the more we will enhance and reinforce all our previous practice. This is because our courage and good humour will grow all the more, once we can see from our own experience how suffering causes our spiritual practice and qualities to blossom.

It is said that by training gradually with smaller sufferings, ‘step by step, in easy stages’, then in the end we’ll be able to handle big suffering and difficulties too. We must go about it like this, because it is extremely difficult to have an experience of something which is beyond our level or capacity.

“You and I are the force for transformation in the world. We are the consciousness that will define the nature of the reality we are moving into. You have to stay in your heart. Be in your heart. The rest is up here in your head where you are doing, doing, doing.

Remember, we are all affecting the world every moment, whether we mean to or not. Our actions and states of mind matter, because we’re so deeply interconnected with one another. Working on our own consciousness is the most important thing that we are doing at any moment, and being love is the supreme creative act.”

~ Ram Dass

If you go back to the source of the suffering of samsara, you will only find ignorance. Ignorance of what? Of the fact that beings and things are devoid of true reality, in that they do not exist in themselves and by themselves.

How does ignorance manifest? If one night you pass by a coiled rope on the ground in the dark, you might think it is a snake curled up and be so terrified that your heart races. Similarly, when we are immersed in the darkness of ignorance, we have a mistaken perception of the temporary meeting of our body and consciousness. Unable to clearly discern its true nature, we take it as an “I”. That “I” in fact has no reality.

As a result, we create a distinction between “I” and “other”: we are attached to the one and reject the other. Based on this double process of attraction and repulsion, all the other mental poisons arise, and under their influence, we take birth in the various higher and lower worlds of samsara in which we do a mixture of beneficial and harmful deeds with unfortunate consequences.

If you can view gold and dirt with equanimity and see them as equal,
That is a sign of having realized the illusory nature of transient things.

All of the various types of teachings and spiritual paths are related to the different capacities of understanding that different individuals have. There does not exist, from an absolute point of view, any teaching which is more perfect or effective than another. A teaching's value lies solely in the inner awakening which an individual can arrive at through it. If a person benefits from a given teaching, for that person that teaching is the supreme path, because it is suited to his or her nature and capacities.

Within emptiness, everything exists in a harmonious state, whether it is good, bad, beautiful, or ugly. Just as all the oceans have the same flavour of salt, everything arises and interacts within emptiness.

~ Shantarakshita

All appearances that arise as objects of the five senses, are like reflections of planets and stars in the ocean. Whatever arises, evenly rest without grasping in the expanse.

The only place that you can never fall from, is the awakened state.

~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

What do I mean when I say, "Keep your mind on yourself?" Your real Self is your heart, not your human heart, but your spiritual heart. Your heart is God. Keep your mind stayed on God in your heart. If you want to use your imagination to begin with, you can image a sphere of white light in your heart on the right side of your chest, your spiritual heart. And allow all your thoughts to merge into your heart.

We do not have to create emptiness, as it has always been the nature of reality. We just have to get rid of our ignorance that is preventing us from directly experiencing it.
