Dear Dharma Sisters and Brothers,
I have some very serious questions I would like to ask you about your daily activities.
Do you practice Dharma every day with universal compassion? Do you think about your own death all the time? Do you think about the tremendous suffering of the three realms? Do you think about how many samayas you break every day? Do you think about your Guru being inseparable from all the Buddhas all the time? Do you recognize all beings as your beloved mother and father whenever you see them? Do you pay attention to the mother sentient beings who may be lying on the ground you are walking on? Do you make offerings to the Triple Gem every time you sit down to eat or drink? Do you visualize Vajrasattva on the crown of your head every time you take a shower? Are you aware that you are dreaming every waking moment? Do you remember that everything is impermanent when grieving the loss of a loved one? Do you think about the countless rebirths awaiting you if you don’t practice well? Do you believe you are ready to practice High Yoga Tantra? When you go to bed at night are you thinking that you may not wake up the next morning? Do you think that everything in your environment is a projection of your mind?
May all beings be born with love and compassion.
May all beings abide with love and compassion.
May all beings act with love and compassion.
May all beings die with love and compassion.
- Tulku Yeshi Rinpoche
