Just as there are….

དིལ་མགོ་མཁྱེན་བརྩེ་ HH Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche...

‎”Just as there are mushrooms that look and taste delicious but are mortally poisonous to anyone imprudent enough to eat them, so too, wealth, fame, and sensual pleasures, which seem very attractive at the outset, will end in bitter disappointment. Conversely, just as medicine that has a very bitter taste may nevertheless be effective cure for sickness, so too spiritual practice -despite the difficulties and ordeals, both physical and mental it may entail- leads nevertheless to an indestructible bliss beyond all trace of suffering”.

– Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
