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

In which context and by whom?

I know a few translators, and only one of them really uses that title. In some translation circles one person who uses it a lot is an unfortunate object of mockery as a result. I don't know any Nyingma or Kagyu Lamas who use it in Tibetan, most seem to use the more colloquial "Ke gyur".
