Tenzin Zangpo Rinpoche (10/06/2016)
« on: June 23, 2016, 08:04:26 am »
When we have some worldly karmic rewards, such as earning some money, maintaining good health, working successfully, we very easily get trapped into pursuing the happiness of the Samsara. At this moment, we usually do not have time to study the Dharma, and not to mention to contemplate the defects of the Samsara. Although life is always full of sufferings, we are addicted to the temporary good times without any concerns, then how can we generate the idea of seeking liberation?

That's a good point. I was lucky being a teacher in that the longer time off allowed me to spend stretches of time studying the Dharma and meditating. I had to develp much shorter meditations while I was teaching, and to take the long view of anything I was studying.
“You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.” Franz Kafka
