Devotion

"Devotion is the energy which allows you to be open to the uncompromising nature of the Lama-disciple relationship. Devotion is, actually, the ability to die and be reborn continually in your relationship with the Lama."

Reflections of emptiness

"Emptiness is the moment before a situation is born. Emptiness is comprehension. Emptiness is astonishment or wordless wonder. Emptiness is the quality of sensation that is neither one thing nor another. These are all reflections of emptiness."
