Bloom [Tanka Poem]

Instructions for the path

Do not forget the Lama, Pray to him at all times. Do not be carried away by thoughts, Watch the nature of mind. Do not forget death, Persist in Dharma. Do not forget sentient beings, With compassion dedicate your merit to them. -- His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
