Lama Yeshe on Buddhism:
"Buddhism is not just about one or two small things; it is not some
tiny philosophy. Lord Buddha explained the nature of every single
phenomenon in the universe."
On Mind:"At certain times, a silent mind is very important,
but 'silent' does not mean closed. The silent mind is an alert,
awakened mind; a mind seeking the nature of reality."
On Meditation:"Meditation is the right medicine for the
uncontrolled, undisciplined mind. Meditation is the way to perfect
satisfaction. The uncontrolled mind is by nature sick; dissatisfaction
is a form of mental illness. What's the right antidote to that? It's
knowledge-wisdom; understanding the nature of psychological phenomena;
knowing how the internal world functions."
