Innumerable Beings

16427714_10210104816049821_8134499034600387556_nHowever many species of living beings there are

—whether born from eggs, from the womb, from division, or spontaneously;

whether they have form or do not have form;

whether they have perceptions or do not have perceptions;

or whether it cannot be said of them that they have perceptions

or that they do not have perceptions—

we must lead all these beings to the ultimate nirvana so that they can be liberated.

And when this innumerable, immeasurable, infinite number of beings

has become liberated, we do not, in truth,

think that a single being has been liberated.

—Buddha Shakyamuni, Diamond Sutra

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.
