** If you see your Guru as a Buddha, you will recieve the blessings of a Buddha ** If you see your Guru as a Boddhisatva, you will recieve the blessings of a Boddhisatva ** If you see your Guru as a friend, you will only receive the blessings of a friend **

Rinpoche sharing some thoughts of past few days...

When we see things from far away, we may not really know how they are up close. Similarly, when we are not in someone else’s shoes,

we might not know what kind of a person he or she is. Thus, unless we know the facts inside out, we should not assume we know who she or he really is.

Simple awareness helps us to understand the existence of different opinions. If we can enhance this meaningful skill, this may enable us to avoid embarrassment and could even save a life. Therefore, although we may look the same, this does not mean that we think the same.

We cannot judge others from how they look, but from what they can contribute for the betterment of our societies.

We are living in a fragile environment, and it only takes one wrong step to send our beautiful lives tumbling down the hill. Therefore, with every single step that we take, we have to be fully aware and mindful. With such an attitude we can foster happiness and work to fulfill our purpose for being in this world.

We look so different outwardly from each  other, however, if we try hard enough, we may become a part of others in team spirit. Therefore, let's try first!

Suspicions make life miserable for everyone. In my opinion, it is always wise and more productive to be open and understanding. If we have no proof and act blindly on our suspicions about others, then this will lead to our needlessly losing trust in others based on pure misunderstanding
