Trying to find a certain teaching on turning mundane daily activities into Dharm

Post by Pema Rigdzin » Wed Feb 08, 2017 9:50 pm

I believe it was by Longchenpa, but not sure. But it advised things like, "when you walk through a door, imagine that you're taking all sentient beings with you out of samsara" and so on. Can't seem to find it. Anyone familiar with this is and know where I can find it?

I can't seem to find a reference to a specific work by Longchenpa in the book but Anyen Rinpoche's "The Union of Dzogchen and Bodhichitta" quotes something from him along those lines, see:

Edit: It appears to be from Longchenpa's "Great Chariot".

There is a text by Jigme Lingpa that may well be the one you are looking for.
