The Boundless Creativity of Change Appreciating the whole cycle of impermanence We usually appreciate only half of the cycle of impermanence.

Hard horn & solid wood  Can be bound if one tries, But the harsh mind in mood Hard to bind even you would. Tiger in south, yak in north Can be tamed if you tried, But pride of mind and mouth Hard to tame even non-sloth. Hills & ricks, here and there, Both may meet without care. But the foe of mind Hard to know, comes from where. Queens & kings, laws & cause, Can be avoided if you tried,…

Shamar Rinpoche once gave the following advice as to how a practitioner could integrate his three instruction texts, or manuals, as he liked to call them: Boundless Awakening, Boundless Wisdom, and The Path to Awakening.
