Riding the Mind

Book coverThe practice of meditation becomes natural. It is just like a horse that is used to being ridden: that horse begins to like the rider rather than feeling resentful. That is why we sometimes call practice “riding the mind.”

From “Introduction” in The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma, Volume Three: The Tantric Path of Indestructible Wakefulness by Chögyam Trungpa, page 15
