eradicate afflictive emotions

May 30, 2010

Simply by turning on the light, you can instantly destroy the darkness. Likewise, even a rather simple analysis of ego-clinging and afflictive emotions can make them collapse. By suppression we may temporarily subdue our afflictive emotions, but only an investigation of their true nature will completely eradicate them.

– Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche, from “An Investigation of the Mind”
