Friend to the World

e84f5d59aa5f03cdc3b4320121f46039Now, while there is freedom to act,

I should always present a smiling face

and cease to frown and grimace.

The first to extend my hand in kindness,

I shall be a friend to the whole world.

—Shantideva, Bodhisattvacaryavatara

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.
