Practicing Dharma requires sacrifice ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

We have to realize the Dharma is priceless. That does not mean Dharma is free. Practicing Dharma requires sacrifice, and sacrifice comes in many forms. If you are a hippie-dippy person and your guru tells you to get a job at a bank or to become a CEO, that is probably one of the most effective forms of guru yoga you could do. And if you are a fresh Ivy League graduate and your guru tells you it’s time to do a nine-year retreat, following that suggestion would be a good act of renunciation.
