Funny story. During the Nyingma Kahma/Yabzhi empowerments given by Kyabje Trulshik Rinpoche at Shechen in 2004/5, Lotsawa Tony came up to me after one of the empowerments and said "Wow.. that was the most incredible explanation of the nature of mind I have ever heard. I'm racing home to find the empowerment text and translate that section". The next day when I saw him he told me he raced home, found the text, looked at that section and told me all it said was "And now, explain to the assembly the nature of mind" :smile:

:smile: good story!

"To reject practice by saying, 'it is conceptual!' is the path of fools. A tendency of the inexperienced and something to be avoided."
- Longchenpa

"Even though you have recognized your essence, if you do not get accustomed to it,
You will be carried away by the enemy of thoughts, like a small child in a battle field.
So long as you are not free from the limitations of accepting and rejecting,
That long will you not recognize the view of the innermost secret heart-essence."
