Today, 4/23, on World Book Day, I want to say that I have been very fortunate to have been reading “The Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment”, Lamrim Chenmo, by the Great Gelug Master Je Tsongkhapa. In Tibet, it is said that sometimes a Dharma book is the best teacher. To read this text is really an excellent opportunity which has a profound effect on body, speech, and mind to turn towards Dharma.
May all sentient beings have happiness and the cause of happiness.
May they be free of suffering and the cause of suffering, especially from the coronavirus and all other physical, material, and mental afflictions.
May they never be disassociated from the supreme happiness which is without suffering.
May they remain in the boundless equanimity, free from both attachment to close ones and rejection of others.
