Kindness is something you feel

"Kindness is something you feel - a warmth and expansiveness which flows from our growing openness. Kindness is our contact, our strongest link with the nondual state."

Khandro and pawo

"Khandro and pawo are the female sky-dancing and male warrior aspects of the nondual state. We discover the khandro principle when we begin to discover our spaciousness. We discover the pawo principle when we begin to discover our innate compassion."

We are not sparate as beings

"We are not separate as beings. We are intimately and inextricably connected. This idea of connection is subtle, because our connection can take any form. Only our innate kindness-liberated through meditation-can guide us to respond accurately."

Finding presence of awarness

"Ultimately, finding presence of awareness in the dimension of the moment is the experience of nondual emptiness and form. Within this experience, all manifestations become the ornaments of spontaneous presence and are experienced as purely appropriate, natural, uncontrived, and free."

The dance of the khandros and pawos

"Our emotions and our personal environment are the dance of the khandros and pawos. To know reality as the dance of the khandros and pawos is to fall in love with them. To fall in love with them is to discover our beginningless enlightenment in the endless empty nature of their dance."
