Cherish your center, cherish all living beings

Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche says that Kadampa centers do not belong to any individuals but to all living beings. And legal and constitutional  safeguards are in place to ensure this will always be the case. This means the centers are very precious. Venerable Geshe-la says that whenever we engage in an action to benefit our center we are in fact benefitting all living beings. Through such actions we accumulate vast merit, purify negativities and receive powerful blessings.

Daily Quote

In the Sutras, Buddha says:

If you have only effort you have all Dharmas,

But if you have only laziness you have nothing.

A person who has no great knowledge of Dharma but who nevertheless applies effort consistently will gradually attain all virtuous qualities; but a person who knows a great deal and has only one fault - laziness - will not be able to increase his or her good qualities and gain experience of Dharma.
