An Integrated Path

STUDY

We’re cultivating our intelligence as opposed to expanding or upgrading its contents. It’s like brightening a room by putting a higher-watt lightbulb in a lamp. Suddenly we can see everything in the room much more clearly.

— Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche

STUDY

In the Buddhist path, we accumulate knowledge in three ways: through study, contemplation, and meditation.

Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche

MEDITATION

The practice of meditation is basically a process of getting to know yourself by becoming familiar with your mind.

— Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche

MEDITATION

When sitting meditation is practiced over time, the mind begins to fall naturally into a resting state, which allows us to be fully present in our life.

— Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche

MEDITATION

The position of your body has a very direct and powerful effect on your mind. An upright posture enables your mind to rest naturally in a calm and peaceful state.

— Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche

MINDFUL ACTIVITY

Once you join practice with day-to-day life, every corner of your world

offers you a way to explore wakefulness, whether you’re in a shrine hall

or on the street.

— Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche

MINDFUL ACTIVITY

When we’re genuinely engaged in a process of working with others, we’re automatically working with ourselves as well.

— Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche

MINDFUL ACTIVITY

The act of bringing your mind into the present is an act of self-discipline. The tendency of mind to move this way and that … is brought to a halt.

— Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche
