A practice based on your mind ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

The essence of the practice of a bodhisattva is to transcend self clinging and dedicate yourself completely to serving others. It is a practice based on your mind, rather than how your actions might appear externally. True generosity, therefore, is to have no clinging; true discipline is to have no desire; and true patience is to be without hatred.
