Today’s dharma quote is yet another from the Vidyādhara, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche (1939-1987), whom I first quoted and wrote a little bio for here. This week saw the twenty-fourth anniversary of his death. This is it, courtesy of Shambhala Publications’ Ocean of Dharma this week:

Insight meditation practice is based on three fundamental factors: first, not centralizing inward; second, not having any longing to become higher; and third, becoming completely identified with here and now. These three elements run right through the practice of meditation, from the beginning up to the moment of realization.
