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

If we are followers of the Mahayana and are seeking to enter into Mahayana paths, it is essential to train in renunciation first. Renunciation is a cause of great compassion, which in turn is a cause of bodhichitta. If we are not acutely aware of the suffering nature of our own aggregates, how can we understand the suffering of others and wish to rescue them from samsara? The only difference between training in renunciation and training in compassion is that with the former we focus on our own suffering and with the latter we focus on the suffering of others.
