A favorite Longchenpa quote: (Old Man Basking in the Sun
(Treasury of Natural Perfection, translated by Keith Dowman, pg. 248)
Longchenpa Rabjampa lived from 1308-1363
“So stay right here, you lucky people,
let go and be happy in the natural state.
Leave your complicated life and everyday confusion
and in a place of solitude, doing nothing, watch the nature of the mind.”
…So lucky because I have the opportunity to turn and watch the mind. My life allows that: peaceful surroundings, remarkable companionship, abundant food and water, the time to be quiet.
What a blessing.
