Words of Wisdom & Compassion

Daily quote from the collected works of Venerable Geshe-la

Dorje Shugden will bless our minds to help us transform difficult situations into the spiritual path, and he will open the wisdom eyes of his faithful followers, enabling them always to make the right decisions. Although physically they may find themselves alone, inwardly those who put their trust in him will never be apart from a powerful ally and a wise and compassionate guide.

Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche,
Heart Jewel
