About this site:
What I have to say has all been
And I am destitute of learning and of skill with words.
I therefore have no thought that this might be of benefit to
I wrote it only to sustain my understanding
My faith will thus be strengthened
for a little while,
That I might grow accustomed to this virtuous way.
But others who now chance upon my words,
May profit also, equal to myself in fortune
(1, 2 - 3 - Shantideva - Bodhicharyavatara)
"What is presented here is
like a map; it is an entirely different experience to actually
make this journey. It requires a guide to make this journey,
and as well, we must make the proper preparations; our minds
must be tamed and trained through the practice of meditation.
Only then can we see the vajra world."

Tips & Truths
the joy the world contains
is through wishing happiness for others.
All the misery the world contains
has come through wanting pleasure for oneself.
(8.129 - Shantideva - Bodhicharyavatara)

student not a follower" Jim Rohn

more truths - the essence
Due to events in the
last 30 years,
involving exile of Tibet and the opening of the Vatican Library
previously ancient, sacred, esoteric , mystical, knowledge
has been made available to the general public.
Did you hear about the tiger that
was brought up by sheep, and so thought he was a sheep, until one
day another tiger saw him and showed the tiger both of their reflections
in a clear pool of water - and so the tiger from then knew that
he was not a sheep, but somthing quite different indeed!
One could say the same for us, Within
us, beneath our obscurations, bad habits, negative emotions, lies
our true nature - loving-kindness, compassion, peace, joy, awareness,
In order to cultivate, sustain,
and enjoy our true nature one first has to become aware of one's
true nature - now this can be through self discovery and the grace
of a teacher
We have a diamond within us, however
one could say it is covered in mud
For some of you This site will
help you find the diamond, identify it, understand it, clean it
and then keep it safe
For others this will be passed off
as mumbo jumbo - and the diamond, although always there will never
be realized - don't be like the tiger thinking it is was sheep!
possibly through a teacher showing
you both of the reflections in a pool of water
You have a choice - just to get
by, or live fully to the full
Are you are sheep or a tiger?!
