Quotes of Wisdom
from Geshe Kelsang Gyatso:
Our problems do not exist outside our mind. The real nature of our problems is our unpleasant feelings which are part of our mind.
The deeper our concentration, the more profound and stable our mental peace will be, and the clearer and more powerful our mind will become.
Patient acceptance does not mean that we do not take practical steps to improve our situation. We do not need to become unhappy or impatient to remedy a situation.
When you come to know your own mind, you will come to know the minds of others. Therefore, watch your own mind.
Having recognized anger as our main enemy, we should then make a strong decision not to allow it to arise.
