"One day, an old man was circumambulating Reting Monastery. Geshe Drom said to him, ‘Sir, I am happy to see you circumambulating, but wouldn’t you prefer to be practicing the dharma?’

Thinking this over, the old man felt he’d better cover himself by reading some buddhist scriptures . While he was reading in the temple courtyard, Geshe Drom said, ‘I am happy to see you reading the dharma, but wouldn’t you prefer to be practicing it?’

At this the old man though that the best way to cover himself would be to meditate single pointedly. He put aside his reading and sat on a cushion, his eyes half closed. Drom said to him, ‘Good to see you meditating, but wouldn’t you rather be practicing the dharma?’

With nothing left to do the old man asked Geshe-la, ‘Please, how should I practice the dharma?’ ‘When you practice’, Drom replied, ‘There is no distinction between the dharma and your own mind.’”

…ones own identity with human limitation; at such moments, one imagines that one stands on some spot of a small planet gazing in amazement at the cold and yet profoundly moving beauty of the eternal, the unfathomable life and death flow into one, and there is neither evolution nor destiny. only Being.” - Albert Einstein
