“When we realize the absolute ground of being, we begin to see that relative truth and absolute truth are inseparable. As we refine our understanding on the path, we see that compassion is inseparable from wisdom. Eventually, we are able to fully realize the form and formless aspects of buddha-nature. During this process, we integrate these aspects more and more. In the beginning, we integrate the phenomenal and the transcendental aspects. In the middle, we integrate the skillful means of compassion with wisdom. Finally, we completely integrate the physical and emptiness aspects of buddha-nature.”
Ven. Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche
