Avoid being distracted ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

Boredom is bound to creep in, often just as you approach the final stretch, and if you then switch to a different path, although the new practice may be inspiring for a few days or even weeks, in terms of spiritual progress you will have slipped right back to square one. Ironically, before long you will become just as bored with the new practice as you were with the old one.

Meet as many lamas as you can, hear as many dharma teachings as possible, particularly if you are eager to pursue the higher paths, and try to socialise with people from the same lineage you are practising. But try to avoid being distracted by other practices that at first glance appear more attractive than those you are already engaged in.
