“If we have to walk across rough and thorny ground, one way of protecting our feet is to cover the whole ground with leather, but this is not very practical.  We can achieve the same result in a much simpler way – by covering our feet.  Similarly, if we wish to protect our self from suffering we can either try to change external conditions to make them conform to our wishes, or we can change our mind.  Until now we have been trying to change the external conditions but this clearly has not worked.  Now we need to change our mind.”  from the New Eight Steps to Happiness by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

“Many benefits follow from taming our mind.  If we take the rope of mindfulness and tie our elephant mind securely to the post of virtue, all our fears will swiftly come to an end.  All positive and virtuous attainments will fall into the palm of our hand.  If we wish to elevate our mind we must merge it with the practise of virtue by steadily applying the power of mindfulness.  This is the very heart of meditation.”  from Meaningful to Behold by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
