Necessary

The indivisible Dharmakaya of Buddhahood, whose qualities are inseparable from its nature, intrinsically abides within all sentient beings.

That does not mean that the two accumulations of merit and pristine wisdom that constitute the path are unnecessary, because 1) to attain enlightenment, incidental defilements must be cleared away, and 2) to accomplish benefit for all sentient beings, the relative form kayas —Sambhogakaya and Nirmanakaya— must be developed.

—Dolpopa Sherab Gyaltsen, Mountain Dharma

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.
