Words of Wisdom & Compassion

Daily quote from the collected works of Venerable Geshe-la

With this human life, each day, each hour, each minute, can be completely worthwhile. Every single moment of our precious human life has great meaning. In just one hour human beings can create the same amount of merit that a god creates in one aeon. If we meditate on love for just five minutes, or if we make just one prostration to our Spiritual Guide regarding him or her as an emanation of all the Buddhas, we shall create immeasurable merit.

Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche,
Joyful Path of Good Fortune
