Ocean of Dharma Quotes of the Week
October 17, 2004
WHEN THE SUN RISES
The tradition of Shambhala is like the rising of the sun. When the sun
rises, everybody is able to see it. But if people are blind, then they are
not able to see it. When we say "blind," we are referring to the
setting-sun people [those who do not connect with wakefulness]. However,
the fundamental or ultimate sun lies in the hearts of all people.
Therefore, everyone possesses fundamental well-being, brilliance, and
purity. Whoever a person is, he or she is capable of crying, and also
capable of laughing. That is the indication that everyone has the Great
Eastern Sun within them.
