Missing the Point

Beautiful! “If we’re not developing our awareness in our everyday life, then we’re missing the point. ―Ponlop Rinpoche” Yes! Amen!!

Great Middle Way

incenseIf we look like Buddhists and talk like Buddhists and sit on a cushion like the other Buddhists, then we think we are automatically followers of the Buddha’s teachings. But all these concepts are cutting us off from the utter simplicity of the Buddha’s example and message.

We do what we do simply to wake up, simply to be free. Any form we use is only a support of accomplishing that purpose. We could be perfect in the performance of a thousand rituals, and they could all be empty of all meaning or benefit if we don’t connect with our heart.

If we’re not developing our awareness in our everyday life, then we’re missing the point.

―Ponlop Rinpoche
