Basically what we have to do is, day by day in a gradual way, reinforce, develop and make larger the habit of loving. It is so mechanical,. You wouldn’t believe how mechanical it is. It’s like this: […]

A friend or important person drops by unexpectedly, or you can meet someone who electrifies and charms you. Listen up and pay attention, this person isn’t staying long. Afterwards, you’ll feel as though a comet just streaked past, leaving you surprised and inspired. Tuck the unusual experience into your memory bank, […]

Astrology for 1/31/2015

Happy day! Emotional satisfaction characterizes this day. Someone loves you and wants to tell you about it. Expanded sensitivity gives x-ray vision into what’s needed at any given time, and you are able to say and do exactly the right thing for others. Something lost yesterday comes back today.

As Many Paths…

The following is an excerpt from a teaching by Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo called “Take Control of Your Life”

Society will teach you wrongly until it understands your nature.  The Buddha is the perfect teacher—the perfect one because he so thoroughly understood our nature.  It is said that when a student came to him for the first time, and said, “I would like to become Buddhist,” or “I would like to take teaching with you,” he could see in an instant all the causes and conditions that brought that student to that moment where he faced the Buddha.  He could see every cause and condition and could give each and every student the antidote necessary to provide the blessings for enlightenment.

That being the case, we can trust in the Buddha’s teaching.  He doesn’t say, “You’re a bag of chemicals.  Now you’re breathing. So good, go get a job. Make yourself happy. Have a chicken in your pot, or a pot with some chicken”.  I don’t know…” Have a drink on Friday nights.”—whatever it is that makes people happy.  He doesn’t say, “Follow in your culture.” He tears the veil apart and he says, “Based on your nature, this is what must be done.  Based on your path, this is what must be done.”  And there are as many methods in the Buddhadharma as there are sentient beings to follow them.
