Today’s Lamrim Quote (22 November 2013)

Kongpo Lama Yeshe Tsondru (1761 - 1816)

Kongpo Lama Yeshe Tsondru (1761 – 1816)

“After death I have no freedom to choose where I shall be reborn, because that is determined by (my previous) deeds.  The force of my non-virtuous deeds is very strong, and the force of my virtuous deeds very weak.  If I fall into the fearful abyss of the unfortunate realms, how shall I bear the suffering?”

From The Essence of Nectar – Stages of the Path to Enlightenment by Kongpo Lama Yeshe Tsondru

As translated in: The Essence of Nectar by Yeshe Tsondru. Translated by Geshe Lobsang Tharchin with Benjamin and Deborah Alterman. Library of Tibetan Work and Archives.
