Rigdzin Jigme Lingpa: the Dharma path


Transcendent generosity is found in contentment;
Its essence is simply letting go.
Discipline is not to displease the Three Jewels.
The best patience is unfailing mindfulness and awareness.
Diligence is needed to sustain all the other perfections.
Concentration is to experience as deities all the appearances to which one clings.
Wisdom is the self-liberation of grasping and clinging.
In it there is neither thinking nor a thinker.
It is not ordinary. It is free from fixed convictions.
It is beyond suffering. It is supreme peace.

~ Rigdzin Jigme Lingpa. as quoted by Patrul Rinpoche. Words of My Perfect Teacher. Yale University Press. 2011.
