Don't Reduce a God to a Demon

 


 
Tibet/Kailas Pilgrimage Blog
If, as you meditate on mind training, your personality becomes stiff with pride and arrogance, it's as though you have reduced a god to a demon; dharma has become nondharma. The more you meditate on mind training and dharma, the more supple your personality should become. Act as the lowest servant to everyone.
