Go On

1375259_524196807654928_137764533_nAlthough you have realized that Buddhas and sentient beings are equal, embrace all beings with compassion. Although the paths and levels are beyond training and journeying, don’t forsake purifying your obscurations through Dharma activities. Although the accumulations are beyond gathering, don’t sever the roots of conditioned virtue.

Although your mind lies beyond birth and death, this illusory body has not died, so practice while remembering death. Although you experience suchness free from thought, maintain the attitude of bodhichitta. Although you have attained the fruition of dharmakaya, keep company with the manifestations of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.

Although dharmakaya is not some other place, seek the true meaning. Although Buddhahood is not anywhere else, dedicate any virtue you create towards unexcelled enlightenment. Although everything experienced is original wakefulness, don’t let your mind stray into samsara.

―Padmasambhava Guru Rinpoche
