THE NECESSITY OF CORRECT VIEW

First, it is absolutely necessary to establish the correct view of the Dharma. The view is the seed from which will ripen the perfect fruit of enlightenment. Having established the view, then one must meditate in order to incorporate the view into one's inner experience. By meditating, putting the view into practise over and over again, the fruits of meditation will come to maturity.

IF YOU HAVE A MAP, YOU WON'T GET LOST

The beauty of Tibetan Buddhism is that it has a clear structure from beginning to end. Perhaps you find all these outlines boring, but Tibetan Buddhism is alive today because of its clear structure. All four traditions have a clean-clear approach, and this should be much appreciated. If ten steps are involved in going from here to there but some of the information is missing, you cannot go all the way. If you have a clear map, however, you won't get lost.

~ Lama Thubten Yeshe Rinpoche

THE NECESSITY OF TRADITION

Without depending on tradition, we cannot do anything. So until we become enlightened, we cannot reject faith that depends on tradition. In order to communicate, it is always necessary to deal with...tradition. But if we rely on it with rigid attachment, then through our clinging, we are trapped by tradition.

THE UNIQUENESS OF DHARMA

Other than the Dharma, we cannot find teachings that express a complete understanding of our own innate mind, how our confusion begins and, ultimately, how it stops.

SOME TIPS FOR MEDITATION PRACTICE

If your practice is weak at the beginning of a meditation session but becomes better later on, you need a little more discipline at the outset to focus the mind. If, by tightening up the mind in this way, it becomes taxed or rebellious, you have been too forceful and must loosen the mind a bit. Also, eat as your meditation requires; don't overdo it. Watch the amount and type of food. Moderation is the watchword. Don't sleep during the day-time. Take good care of your body. Maintain your health and apply yourself diligently in practice.

~ Deshung Rinpoche
