Monks and Nuns

nor true renunciates who oppress others.

Not despising, not harming, exercising restraint,

following the precepts, consuming in moderation,

being chaste and devoted to meditation:

this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

—Buddha Shakyamuni, Udanavarga

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.
