Without Distinction

11693963_10153326308541131_8670129978475019938_nThe Dharma which I teach is totally pure

and makes no distinctions between race or caste,

between rich or poor, between good and bad.

It is like washing in pure water.

The water washes all races and castes,

rich and poor, good and bad, without distinction.

It is like a fire which burns all substances without exception:

mountains, rocks, sky and earth.

My teaching is like the sky under which all find a place:

men, women, boys, girls, rich and poor, all without exception.

―Buddha Shakyamuni, Sutra of the Wise and Foolish

About Tashi Nyima

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. Espero que estos textos ofrezcan a algunos un mapa general y herramientas básicas para la práctica del sendero a la iluminación que nos ofrece el Buda.
