inner peace

“Everything we do is infused with the energy with which we do it. If we’re frantic, life will be frantic. If we’re peaceful, life will be peaceful. And so our goal in any situation becomes inner peace.”

Marianne Williamson


Establishing all beings in the dharma ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

A bodhisattva benefits all beings equally, without discriminating between enemies and friends. Giving food, clothes and the like to others can only bring them temporary and limited relief; it does not help them at the moment they die, nor after their death. But if you can establish all beings in the dharma, you will help them in a way that is both immediately beneficial and beneficial for their future lives. Practicing the dharma enables them to free themselves from samsara and achieve enlightenment – so that is the way to truly repay your parents’ kindness. Any other way is not enough.
