Sometimes people imagine that there is a conflict between practicing the Dharma and serving others, but in fact, faith and loyalty to the Dharma overcome all such distinctions.
Commitment toward ourselves merges naturally with commitment to the Dharma and commitment to others.
The trust we place in the Dharma is inseparable from loyalty to our own heart and mind.
It encompasses not just ourselves, but what we know and love.
For the love of the Dharma is also the love of truth – devotion to the higher prospects of an all-encompassing vision.Tarthang Tulku RinpocheTeachings from the Heart
