Commitment To Tara

Commitment to Tara “Strengthened by your love, I will follow your supreme example. Inspired by you, I will break the bonds of petty selfhood.

“Through The Power Of Devotion” ~ Niguma

“This variety of desirous and hateful thoughts that strands us in the ocean of cyclic existence once realized to be without intrinsic nature, makes everything a golden land, child. If you meditate on the illusion-like nature of illusion-like phenomena, actual illusion-like buddhahood will occur through the power of devotion.” ~ Niguma

Taking This Into The World ~ Pema Chödrön

“Deep down in the human spirit there is a reservoir of courage. It is always available, always waiting to be discovered.

On Shenpa, Part III by Pema Chödrön

“Instead of seeing shenpa as an obstacle to be overcome, it is more helpful to consider it an opportunity for transformation, an open doorway to awakening. When I realize I’m triggered, I think of it as a neutral moment, a moment in time, a moment of truth that can go either way. What I’m advocating […]

Shenpa, Part I by Pema Chödrön

There’s a very useful teaching, which I heard from Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche, that allows us to take a closer look at this knee-jerk pattern of moving away from being present. This is the teaching on ‘shenpa.’ Generally the Tibetan word shenpa is translated “attachment,” but that has always seemed too abstract to me, as it […]
