“Even if you and I were to consider ourselves among the poorest beings on this earth, we have the ultimate resources to benefit and liberate ourselves and other beings to the greatest level of joy and ease, and moreover to freedom from all afflictions. We have the potential of Buddhahood.”

—From Tempa Lama’s book, The Intimate Mind: Illuminating Emotion and Transformation
