"Purification during practice is like washing clothes, when the clothes are there, they look very clean and nice, but when we wash them, dirt will come out. Similarly, when we practice, difficult emotions and sickness will be pushed out. Without washing, we don’t know the clothes are dirty, without practice, we don’t know how much garbage we carry with us."
"When our mind remains in peace and equanimity, outside problems will not effect us much;
when our mind is unstable, not functioning well, unhappy, our outer wealth will remain unhelpful!"
"Do not pay too much attention to experience during meditation, whatever you have, it’s not good, not bad, just continue. This is what Milarepa said to Gampopa."
"We need some samadhi in daily life, or else we will feel we are the victim of everything, pushed and pulled by everyone."
"Lacking the experience of precious human life and impermanence lead to laziness and distraction. You don’t have to stop completely all your hobbies, but sometimes it’s good to do, sometimes its good to stop. With experience of precious human life and Impermanence, I mean actual experience not just understanding of words. Such actual experience will help you see the futility of all worldly distraction and thus practice Dharma naturally."
“We do many exercises for our body because we know the benefit of doing it. But we do not know how important mind exercise is;
when we face the difficulty of feeling lost or feeling unsatisfied in our material world then we might find benefit in training our mind."
