By having studied, I’ve only filled my empty head.
By doing prostrations, I’ve only ruined my fragile knees.
By making offerings, I’ve only fallen further into poverty.
By sitting for days on end, I’ve only found myself alone.
By seeking enlightenment, it seems that I’ve only become more deluded.
Having nothing, abandoning all, I have lost myself but found the view.
Distracted, I scribbled this down and missed what Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche was saying while he was sharing his wisdom and realization.Photo of Gomde, Austria by Michael Tweed.
