Preliminary Practices

“Immerse yourself in the meaning of the teachings, day after day, month after month, and the spiritual qualities of a Bodhisattva will develop without difficulty, like honey collecting in the hive as the bees go from flower to flower, gathering nectar…”

“When we take our first steps on the Path, we are not yet capable of helping others. To accomplish the good of others, we must first perfect ourselves, by purifying and transforming our minds. This is the aim of what we call the preliminary practices, which establish the foundations of all spiritual progress…”

“The Excellent Path to Enlightenment” by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
