Dharma is not a therapy ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

It is such a mistake to assume that practising dharma will help us calm down and lead an untroubled life; nothing could be further from the truth. Dharma is not a therapy. Quite the opposite, in fact, dharma is tailored specifically to turn your life upside down – it’s what you sign up for. So when you life goes pear-shaped, why do you complain?
