What we rely on

From Jade Mountain – Practice Within the Order of Buddhist Contemplatives

Rely on the message of the teacher,
     not on her personality;
Rely on the meaning,
     not just on the words;
Rely on the real meaning,
     not on the provisional one;
Rely on your wisdom mind,
     not on your ordinary, judgmental mind.

Shakyamuni Buddha:
The Four Reliances

When, and where, would this advice NOT apply?

Just further proof that wisdom does not need to be dense for it to be heavy…man.  Simpler still…Broaden don’t narrow.

Cheers,

John
