"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
