During the past weekend, we devoted ourselves to the practice of Vajrakilaya to remove the external, internal and secret obstacles to the New Year. We also received instructions from Lama Öser on devotion, compassion and renunciation, the foundations of the Buddhist path. May this wonderful accumulation of insight and merit be of benefit to all living beings!
“We all want to practice Dharma, but the foundation of realization is compassion. A mind without compassion is like a dry field where nothing will grow, no matter how many seeds we sow on it.
"Buddha, Buddha, Buddha, I want to be a Buddha!" We can wish to be Buddha for many ages. But the seed of Buddha is in ourselves. We have to recognize our own mind! The seed of Buddha is compassion. ”
~ Lama Öser
