King of the Empty Plain

Postby kirtu » Thu Mar 15, 2012 11:52 pm

At long last, I have a copy of Cyrus Stearn's essay on and translation of Tangtong Gyalpo's biography, King of the Empty Plain, The Tibetan Iron Bridge Builder Tangtong Gyalpo. Eagerly pouring through it as time permits ...... :twothumbsup:

Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche
