Be calm and aware, be kind and helpful. these are the words my teacher taught me. Be calm and aware, be kind and helpful. these are the things my teacher showed me.
Two years ago Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche leaned over to me and taught me these words. He insisted me to repeat and memorize them. As simple and obvious as they seem to be, I found them to be extremely valuable, and not always so easy to live up to. I hope that by chanting these words my mind can also transform, and become more and more like the shining example of Rinpoche, who seems to embody the full depth of the meaning of these words in every moment and aspect of his life.
