Tame Your Mind

Book coverMany people wish to be healthy, to be free from disease, and to remain forever young, but these are not very meaningful goals. If you can tame your mind, the value of this will far surpass anything in the world. Patrul Rinpoche said, “Tame the mind, tame the mind, use bodhichitta to tame the mind. Even if we do not cultivate any good deeds in body and speech, taming our mind in fact benefits ourselves and all beings.”

From Always Present by Jigme Phuntsok, page 50
