Geshe Rabten All dharma collects into one intention


All methods of the different traditions of the dharma that were taught by the Buddha Shakyamuni have the same intention and goal — the destruction of both the self-cherishing attitude and self-grasping ignorance. If we approach this goal steadily, our practice is progressing well, but if nothing is bringing these real targets closer to destruction, something is wrong in our approach. If this is the case, then, just as we would add weight to one side of an unbalanced scale to bring it to equilibrium, we should add more energy to our practice by applying the appropriate methods and meditations more diligently than before.
