Self-created illusory samsara

"Externally speaking, one should take refuge in sang-gyé, chö and gendün with devotion. But internally, sang-gyé, chö and gendün are symbolic. They are a profound and skilful way to lead us out of this self-created illusory samsara."

Kindness flows naturally

"Kindness flows naturally from our beginningless non-dual nature. So if we remind ourselves constantly to be kind, we constantly put ourselves in closer contact with our primordial non-dual state."

Singing the mantra of Yeshé Tsogyel

"Singing the mantra of Yeshé Tsogyel is a sem’dzin practice. One is finding presence of awareness in the dimension of sound; it is a meditative practice. The function is that the tune itself has a particular quality that enables one to enter into the state of awareness."
