Today’s Lamrim Quote – 1 October 2012

Je Tsong Khapa, Lobsang Drakpa

Je Tsong Khapa, Lobsang Drakpa (1357-1419)

“At death, my body and life-force will perish quickly
Like bubbles on a moving stream. Remembering this
And having found stable certainty that after death,
The fruits of my glowing and murky actions will follow behind,
Like a shadow to a body,
I request inspiration always to take care
To rid myself of even the slightest, most minor action
That would build up a network of faults and to accomplish
Every possible deed that will build up a network of constructive force.”

Verse 3-4 from Foundation of All Good Qualities by Je Tsong Khapa. Translated by Alex Berzin. PDF available from The Berzin Archives.
