Wisdom for Today

Teachings from the world of Buddhism and beyond, updated each weekday

Maybe you think you can wake up 50 per cent—just enough to get beyond the “crazy” stage but not all the way to “wisdom.” However, it’s not the message of the Buddha or the intention of Buddhism to provide a partial recovery from confusion. The message of the Buddha is that you’re 
awake now and that you can, if you apply yourself, realize it. — Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche. 29 September 2022
