Dear friends near and far

On this Guru Rinpoche Day I would like to share three short points:

  1. Our routine is extremely important. In terms of practice, this means keeping a daily routine of practice. This is the first point.
  2. Secondly, generating compassion—correct, unmistaken compassion—and balancing it with meditation is very important.
  3. And thirdly, finding our own faults, but without judging ourselves. This is key, but it is also quite difficult. We have our own problems, difficulties, and in particular bad habits. We have a lot of selfishness and many bad habits. So it is very important to check and become aware of these.

Please try to keep these points in mind and apply them throughout your lives.

With many aspirations.

Sarva Mangalam,

Phakchok Rinpoche
