Practicing with Your Problems

Book coverA basic point of the hinayana or basic training of Buddhism is the conviction that you can practice along with your problems. It is not because you can solve your problems that you can do it, and it is also not because somebody else suddenly became enlightened. The point is that you can do it because somebody else did not become enlightened and still was a follower of the path.

From The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma, Volume One by Chögyam Trungpa, page 136.
