Advice to Yéshey Dawa

by Dilgo Khyentsé Rinpoché, Rabsel Dawa


 

The creator of delusion and liberation in Saṃsāra and Nirvāṇa is one’s own mind.

Mind has the innate character of Emptiness: Beyond origination, cessation and duration.

Sustain the uncontrived reality of this innate character, with unwavering mindfulness.

The definitive meaning of the View, Meditation and Conduct, in their entirety, is subsumed within that.

 

At the request of the faithful Yéda (Yéshey Dawa, ye shes zla ba), this advice was imparted by Maṅgala.

(Translated from the Tibetan by Erick Tsiknopoulos.)
