trntIf Dharma practitioners are holy, it follows that wherever they go they leave in their wake an increase in faith and compassion, a diminishing of sectarianism and emotionalism, and beings who are more gentle and relaxed.

When faith, respect, and compassion diminish, when sectarianism, factionalism, and negative emotions increase, and when beings therefore become coarser —given to argumentation, lies, and strife— these are signs that someone has been a worldly influence.

—Jetsun Taranatha

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.
