The freedom to practice the Dharma ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

An explorer who discovers a treasure island can fill his ship with gold, diamonds, sapphires, rubies and emeralds. But his good fortune has nothing to compare with human life, which offers us something far more precious than any gold and precious stones-the chance to reflect on and practice the Dharma and give meaning to our lives. The treasures we have to choose from are the various teachings offered by the fundamental, the great, and the diamond vehicles.It is now, while you enjoy all the favorable conditions of human life, that you have the freedom necessary to practice the Dharma.
