The Essence of Enlightenment

nagarjuna (2)The Buddha teaches according to the capacity of students.

Some He urges to refrain from harm, others to do good;

some to rely on dualism, other on non-dualism.

And to some He teaches the profound,

the terrifying, the practice of enlightenment,

whose essence is the emptiness that is compassion.


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.

    Good morning Tashi. I have just posted a poem I wrote today called “Falling for compassion”. Perhaps you would like to have a look. You are welcome. 🙂
