Practice with joy and enthusiasm ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

Practice with joy and enthusiasm, and never fall into laziness or apathy. Especially, never think, “now that is enough.” People start to feel proud of themselves after offering a few thousand prostrations and reciting a few hundred thousand mantras, while at the same time feeling not the slightest hesitation to kill insects, indulge all their whims, and make light of their negative acts, numerous though these may be. That is a big mistake. And that is why we need the guidance of a spiritual teacher just as much as a young child needs the guidance of its parents.
