A Sublime Tree

Related imageIn the desert of existence, for those afflicted by the heat of sorrow, may you become a sublime and prominent tree whose height is discipline, whose trunk is effort, whose buds are forbearance and self-restraint, whose flowers are calmness, whose branches are wisdom, whose canopy of leaves is generosity, whose top is aspiration, whose shadow is morality, and which offers peace as its fruit!

—Chandragomin, Letter to a Disciple

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.
