The Dharma is the best way of using your life ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

Even if your storerooms and wardrobes are full, you can still only eat one meal and wear one garment at a time. In truth, all you need is enough nourishment to keep going and clothing to protect you from the elements. As for these two necessities, do not worry about them: the Buddha promised that no one will ever find the bones of a renunciate who has died of hunger or cold. What is the use of hesitating out of concern that you will not have enough to eat, nothing to put on your back, and nowhere to sleep? The Dharma is the best way of using your life – have no doubt about it.
