Rigpa Glimpse of the Day
- Tashi Deleg
In Tibet we say: �Negative action has one good quality: it can be purified.�
So there is always hope. Even murderers and the most hardened criminals can
change and overcome the conditioning that led them to their crimes. Our
present condition, if we use it skillfully and with wisdom, can be an
inspiration to free ourselves from the bondage of suffering.

If this elephant of mind is bound on all sides by the cord of mindfulness,
All fear disappears and complete happiness comes.
All enemies: all the tigers, lions, elephants, bears, serpents (of our emotions);
And all the keepers of hell; the demons and the horrors,
All of these are bound by the mastery of your mind,
And by the taming of that one mind, all are subdued,
Because from the mind are derived all fears and immeasurable sorrows.
