The Kagyu Lineage and the Karmapas: The Indian Lineage

Tilopa said; The fool in his ignorance, disdaining Mahamudra,
knows nothing but struggle in the flood of samsara.
Have compassion for those who suffer constant anxiety!

Sick of unrelenting pain and desiring release, adhere to a master,
For when his blessing touches your heart, the mind is liberating.

The oil which is the essence of the sesame,
although known even by the ignorant to be in the seed,
cannot be extracted unless it is learnt how to do so.

Likewise, the Innate Gnosis (sahaja-jnana),
though always present in the hearts of beings,
is not realized unless the way is explained by a wise Guru.

All the water and drink you’ve consumed
Through beginningless time until now;
Has failed to slake your thirst or bring you contentment.

Drink therefor this stream
Of enlightenment mind, fortunate ones!

Advice from Me to Myself
Patrul Rinpoche –
Listen up,You dweller-in-distraction.
For ages now you’ve been
Beguiled, entranced, and fooled by appearances.
Are you aware of that? Are you?
Right this very instant, when you’re
Under the spell of mistaken perception
You’ve got to watch out.
