The object of knowledge in dream is not seen when one awakes. Similarly the world disappears to him who is awakened from the darkness of ignorance.
Love yourself and be awake – today, tomorrow, always. First establish yourself in the way, then teach others, and so defeat sorrow. To straighten the crooked you must first do a harder thing – straighten yourself. You are the only master. Who else? Subdue yourself, and discover your master.
Giving without expecting anything in return and bearing fruit in the future when the giver is in need of help.

Profound and tranquil, free from complexity, uncompounded luminous clarity, beyond the mind of conceptual ideas; this is the depth of the mind of the Victorious Ones. In this there is not a thing to be removed, nor anything that needs to be added. It is merely the immaculate looking naturally at itself.
— Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche
