To be virtuous doesn’t simply mean to wear yellow robes; it means to fear the ripening of karma. To be a spiritual friend doesn’t just mean to assume a dignified demeanour; it means to be the glorious protector of everyone. To be a yogi doesn’t mearly mean to behave crudely; it means to mingle one’s mind with the nature of dharmata.

— Padmasambhava, Guru Rinpoche
