The Motivation to Practice I: Working with Others

Book coverWhy do you stick with your practice? Why don’t you go do something else and forget the whole thing? There are many levels of motivation. You may want to learn more about yourself and about meditation. Your motivation may be long range, to have your entire life coincide with practice. But the ultimate motivation is to develop your meditation in order to learn how to work with other people.

From “Following the Example of the Buddha” in The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma, Volume One, by Chögyam Trungpa, pages 181-182

One thought on “The Motivation to Practice I: Working with Others

  1. Ive always beleived that there is no definetive “truth” only our search for the truth may bring about ones higher vibration, but the very act of trying to describe a mystery leads to logic floundering. Lets just try to be good to all souls! Thats wisdom enough for all.
