When heat, moisture, and fertile soil come together, you do whatever you can to sow grain. When you discover a deposit of gold or silver, you do whatever you can to exploit it. When the crops are ready in autumn, you do whatever you can to harvest them. When you have an escort to accompany you on a dangerous path, you redouble your energy. When you have labour and assistants, you accomplish your tasks. Now that you have a precious human life free of all impediments and endowed with all favourable conditions, apply yourself unrelentingly to spiritual practice!

— Shechen Gyaltsab Rinpoche
