The Third Dzogchen Old Drupa Tulku: Thupten Nyima Rinpoche (Vajra Guru)
珠巴老上师的珍贵教言/ precious teachings by Old Drupa Rinpoche
Perseverance is the most important merit for buddhist practice. In daily life please try to gossip less, talk less, chant scriptures more, understand impermanence more, in order to have more confidence to persevere in your practice. Time is very precious to us. If you do not grasp your time to practice, when you face to death, you will feel fear, therefore you cannot in charge of your own soul. Only when you practice well you will not be afraid to death, so that you can relief, no longer subject to the cycle of suffering. Do not waste your precious time.
常常记住五要五不要 always remember:
1.不要太厉害，要多柔软 don’t be too severe, be more flexible
2.不要太管事，要多清净 don’t be too officious, be more quiet
3.不要太随便，要多随缘 don’t be too casual, but let things go naturally, do not force things to happen
4.不要太说话，要多念经 don’t talk too much, spend more time on chanting scriptures
5.不要太亲近，要保持距离 don’t get too close, keep some distance
Anything you face to, please do not be too inflexible, especially in relationship. The more enthusiasm and attraction you expect to get , the more disappointment and pain you get. No desire, no expectation. No bitterness, no pain.
