Spiritual practice is like riding a bicycle ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

Spiritual practice is a bit like riding a bicycle. Once you have learnt how to cycle there is no need to go over the theory behind how the gears work or the best height for your saddle every time you go for a ride. All you have to do is get on your bike and start pedalling. And the key to this practice is to do the best you can and don’t worry too much about whether what you are doing is right or wrong; eventually you will get the hang of it.
