All personal experiences are most welcome. To share and to answer their pluses and minuses. There is a significant difference between knowledge and information. One may have massive intellectual information without any knowledge how to apply it to everyday life. Or without accumulating ‘mountains’ of information you just know a few ways how to help yourself, what’s working for you and be able to apply it in very practical way.

"If you lack the true wealth of contentment of mind,

You’ll think you need all kinds of useless things,

And end up even worse than an ordinary person,

Take care to avoid becoming stubbornly impervious to the teachings. Limit yourself to just a few activities and undertake them all with diligence. Not allowing your mind to become fidgety and restless, make yourself comfortable on your seat in a retreat cabin, this is the surest way to gain the riches of knowledge.

You might remain sealed in strict retreat for months or even years, but if you fail to make any progress in the state of your mind, later, when you tell everyone about all that you did over such a long time, aren’t you just bragging about all your hardships and destitution? All their praise and acknowledgements will only make you proud.

No matter where you stay, be it a busy place or a solitary retreat, the only things that you need to conquer are mind’s five poisons (anger, desire, ignorance, pride and envy)∗  And your own true enemies, the eight worldly concerns. Nothing else. Whether it is by avoiding them, transforming them, taking them as the path or looking into their very essence, whichever method is best suited to your own capacity.

There’s no better sign of accomplishment than a disciplined mind. This is true victory for the warrior who carries no weapons."

Chatral Rinpoche

Those who forget their own nature, their Godly essence, forget the power within themselves. Our real nature most often is mistaken by others. They prefer to believe in a miracle of the supernatural, rather than the inner strength of the powers that all of us possess.” Sri Trailanga Swami
