Prepare yourself for death ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

Even in times of peace, a nation foresees the eventuality of war, and remains ready to respond. In the same way, stay on the alert, and prepare yourself for death by practicing the Dharma. Like an eternal harvest, it will keep you supplied with provisions for the life to come and will be the very basis of your future happiness.
