wpid-dolpopa-sherab-gyaltsen-e7ac83e5b883e5b7b4e5969ce9a5b6e59d9ae8b59e-17-jpgWhen studying the Dharma,

rely on the message, not on the messenger;

rely on the meaning, not on the words;

rely on the intention of the teacher, not on your self-interested speculation;

rely on the entirety of the teaching, not on partial understanding.

—Kunchen Dolpopa Sherab Gyaltsen

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.
