Start that very day ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

Your fields need to be worked, or your business needs to be attended to, or your search for a suitable partner may be your main concern — I can only guess at the things you spend your time on. But remember, the more your life is taken up by such concerns, the more you run the risk of death robbing you of what little time you set aside for Dharma practice. Do not allow the weight of ordinary preoccupations to divert you from the pursuit of Dharma. If the thought of practicing occurs to you one day, start that very day. If it comes one night, start that very night. Whatever the place and the time, do it there and then.
