The ultimate teacher, the absolute, is never separate from us,
Yet immature beings, not recognizing this,
look outside and seek him far away,
Sole father, with your immense love
you have shown me my own wealth;
I, who was a pauper,
constantly feel your presence in the depth of my heart.
Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
