Love, Compassion, and Impermanence

Myriads of different thoughts and ideas

run through our minds.

But among all the thoughts

that we might possibly have,

there are two that stand out as truly special.

The first is the thought of impermanence.

Thinking about impermanence

clears the mind of its clutter.

It enables us to think of and perceive the world

in a way that is radically different

and genuinely constructive.

The second is love and compassion.

Love and compassion hold inconceivable power.

Love and compassion never lead us astray.

~Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche

(1951 to pres., Tibetan/ Nepalese Buddhist Teacher,

founder of  the Rangjung Yeshe Institute)
