Not By Faith Alone

Eight_Lineage_-_Kalachakra_Jordruk

It is not enough to have faith. One must also part far from the five deeds of immediate retribution (killing the father, killing the mother, killing a Bodhisattva, wounding a Buddha, splitting the Sangha) and from the rejection of the Dharma, and engender the mind of enlightenment (recollecting the Buddha) tenfold.

Birth in the Pure Land will not be achieved by faith alone.

—Dolpopa Sherab Gyaltsen

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.
