Quotes by Jigme Khyentse Rinpoche
Some people say that they have no purpose in life, yet they definitely have at least one; and that is that they want to be happy, just like all beings. We all want to be happy. This feeling is the basic and fundamental sign that we have a potential within us, a richness to be exploited.
What would we like to pass on to our children? A good image of ourselves, so they see us as being better than we really are? What's the point?
But we could leave them an inspiration, a vision that is meaningful and that can give them confidence in every moment of their lives. Of course, to be able to do that, we need to get some confidence ourselves, to develop an inner certainty. It is obvious that this feeling can only come from our mind, so it is high time we did something about it.
