RE: Rigpa Glimpse of the Day
- How can the wisdom mind of the buddhas be introduced? Imagine the nature of
mind as your face; it is always with you, but you cannot see it without
help. Now imagine that you have never seen a mirror before. The introduction
by the master is like holding up a mirror suddenly in which you can, for the
first time, see your face reflected.
Just like your face, this pure awareness of Rigpa is not something �new�
that the master is giving you that you did not have before, nor is it
something you could possibly find outside of yourself. It has always been
yours, and has always been with you, but up until that startling moment you
have never actually seen it directly.

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.
