Victory & Defeat

EndlessKnot03dWhenever someone out of envy

does me wrong by attacking or belittling me,

I will take defeat upon myself,

and give the victory to others.


Even when someone I have helped,

or in whom I have placed great hopes

mistreats me very unjustly,

I will view that person as a true spiritual teacher.

―Langri Tangpa, 8 Verses on Training the Mind, v. 5-6

I am a Dharma student, and aspire to be a companion on the path. I trust that these texts can offer a general approach and basic tools for practicing the Buddha's way to enlightenment. ||| Soy un estudiante del Dharma, y aspiro a ser un compañero en el sendero.
