“On the absolute level, there are no notions of virtue and non-virtue. Virtue and non-virtue are self-liberated. This is ultimate reality. Everything is free, and nothing substantially, solidly exists. But on the relative level, there are causes and conditions that reflect unceasingly. Because of interdependence, there are trillions of conceptions that support one other in virtuous and unvirtuous ways. We must strive to perform only virtuous activities. On the relative level, merit is accumulated as the fruit of interdependent coordination.”
Venerable Khenpo Rinpoches
