“Many people turn towards those practices reputed to bring quick results, even immediate enlightenment. Perhaps this is courageousness, perhaps merely pride. Perhaps the assumption is that if they can say they are doing an advanced practice, this makes them an advanced person.”

Shamar Rinpoche
From “A Change of Expression” (Editions Dzambhala, 1991)
