To not become happy because of praise, To not become unhappy because of blame, To support one's own good virtues, This is the character of the supreme being.
If the intention is good, the levels and paths are good. If the intention is bad, the levels and paths are bad, Since everything depends on intentions it is important that we make them positive.
Do not do anything harmful to one another, do only what is good. Discipline your own mind to subdue negative emotions.
Do no evil whatsoever, practice virtue perfectly, tame your mind completely. This is the teaching of the Buddhist doctrine.
If the intention is good, the levels and paths are good. If the intention is bad, the levels and paths are bad, Since everything depends on intentions, Always make sure they are positive. Jetsun Mila sang: No-one to ask me … Continue reading

Nagarjuna is a seventh century Buddhist enlightened master. Through his letters to a king, he gives a useful explanation of how to keep positive good discipline as a human being. As human beings, we have more potential for intelligence than other animals, but we are using this intelligence in the wrong way. As sentient beings, we have many obstacles coming from identification with ones ego mind. How can we deal with this? Through Buddhist meditation we can resolve all of these problems by practicing love and compassion without empty meditation. Continue reading

Thirty Pieces of Advice from the Heart
Khenchen Pema Sherab taught on “Thirty Pieces of Advice from the Heart” in Lerab Ling during the All-Mandala retreat, 2009. The recordings contain the teaching in Tibetan with English translation by Gyurmé.
Khenchen Pema Sherab Rinpoche is a disciple of H.H. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche and other great Nyngima masters. He is current head of the Nyingma Lineage. What does Khenpo mean? In the vinaya tradition it means keeping the monastic vows and providing for other monks; it also designates one great realization, superior training and knowledge in the sutrayana and vajrayana traditions. He is the best living example of a Khenpo in our lineage because of his pure intention and countless disciples that will remain for a long time and benefit countless sentient beings. His quality is like Shariputra–outside pure, inside pure, like a lotus. However you are able to connect with him or his teachings will be most meaningful and bring you many blessings.

Kybje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, one the five immediate reembodiments of Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, was born in 1910 as the fourth son of the Dilgo family, which traced its descent from the great ninth century king of Tibet, Trisong Detsen. The family home, his birthplace, was in the valley of Denkhok in Kham the easternmost of Tibet’s four main provinces. Kham was made up of many small kingdoms,
of which the largest and most influential was Derge. Khyentse Rinpoche’s grandfather, Tashi Tsering, and later his father, were both ministers to the king of Derge.
Khyentse Rinpoche’s elder brother had been recognized as the incarnation of Sangye Nyenpa, a great teacher whose seat was Benchen. Despite being very religious, his father was not happy at all, because his first son was already a monk and he had no wish to let all the others embrace the monastic life. Continue reading
