Kongpo Lama Yeshe Tsondru (1761 - 1816)

Kongpo Lama Yeshe Tsondru (1761 – 1816)

“Just as one and the same moon in the sky
Appears at once, without effort, reflected in
Every body of water in the world;
So too my Path-showing Spiritual Friends, says a Sutra,
Are one and the same wisdom-knowledge of the Buddhas,
Appearing at once, without effort, in the forms
Of Emanation, Enjoyment and ordinary Gurus
Before pure and impure tamable beings, to tame them.”

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

As translated in: The Essential Nectar: Meditations on the Buddhist Path by Geshe Rabten. Edited and verse translation by Martin Wilson. Wisdom Publications (currently out of print).
