Sayings by the Great Masters

“Do not take them as a window through which to observe others’ faults, but rather as a mirror for examining your own.

Look carefully within yourself to see whether or not you have those hidden faults.

If you do, recognize them and take out of their hiding place. Correct your mind and set it at ease on the right path…”

Patrul Rinpoche (“The Words of my Perfect Teacher”)







” Our mind is originally pure, but when even one thought enters the mind, its purity is lost”

Chan Master Sheng Yen (“Song of Mind”)

“Unless you practise Dharma according to the Dharma, Dharma itself becomes the cause of evil rebirths.”

Dagpo Rinpoche





“Confess your hidden faults.
Approach what you find repulsive.
Help those you think you cannot help.
Anything you are attached to, let it go.
Go to the places that scare you.”

Padampa Sangye
