Accepting short-term sufferings ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

In order to be able to practice Dharma, it may happen that you have to endure illness, or suffer from heat, cold, hunger or thirst. But since these short-term sufferings will help you purify your past negative actions and, in the long term, to reach ultimate buddhahood, accept them with joy, like a swan gliding into a lotus pond!
