During one of his last conversations with a prominent disciple, the great Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye, co-founder of the non-sectarian Rimé movement, humbly stated:
My life’s work is complete. If I were to die tomorrow,
there would be nothing more for me to worry about.
Even if I cannot hope to be reborn in some pure realm,
I might at least gain a human rebirth.
I pray that I will be reborn where I don’t have to eat meat.
