Daily Wisdom / Ocean of Dharma

Bliss is Like an Eagle Without Boots

Book coverWhen you drop your unnecessary things, you finally can swoop and fly in vast space. It is so blue, so bright, and so nice, so airy and fresh. You can stretch your wings and breathe the air. You can do anything you want. You have experienced cheerfulness and joy, and finally the bliss of freedom occurs in you. You are like an eagle without its hat, coat, and boots.

From “Fruition Mahamudra” in The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma, Volume Three: The Tantric Path of Indestructible Wakefulness by Chögyam Trungpa, page 615
