odd man out

May 11, 2011

First, there has to be some sense of being wary of confused states, an acute understanding that this clinging to “me” causes nothing but trouble, endless trouble.

Second, you must cultivate love and compassion for all sentient beings, develop compassion to the point where you cannot bear not to help others.

And third, there has to be some sincere interest in finding the real solution, the antidote to the root cause of confused spinning around in samsara, which is the attitude of blindly clinging to ego.

– Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche
