If we just enjoy this precious human life for its limited time without bringing back the jewel of the Dharma, we are like an explorer who goes to an island covered with treasure and returns with nothing. The journey will have been useless.

If we just get caught up in the activities of daily life, and neglect the Dharma’s liberating instructions, we will have possessed this precious human existence but gained nothing from it.

— Shechen Gyalsap Rinpoche
