“Seasoned practitioners are called “spiritual warriors.” They do not earn this title by practicing all by themselves, sitting on the porch eating Häagen-Dazs ice cream. They interact with Sangha members, and with other sentient beings, too. They invite the spontaneous and chaotic into their lives. And they love challenges. They meet them by remaining aware, by letting go, and by speaking and acting in ways that are always appropriate and beneficial.”
Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche
