The cup that holds the teachings ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

The essence of Buddhism is beyond culture, but it is practiced by many different cultures, which use their traditions as the cup that holds the teachings. If the elements of these cultural trappings help other beings without causing harm, and if they don’t contradict the four truths, then Siddhartha would encourage such practices.

Cawan yang mewadahi ajaran ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

Inti ajaran Buddha melampaui budaya, namun dipraktekkan oleh berbagai macam budaya, yang menggunakan tradisi mereka sebagai cawan untuk mewadahi ajaran Buddha. Jika unsur-unsur dari ornamen budaya ini membantu makhluk lain tanpa menimbulkan bahaya, dan jika tidak bertentangan dengan empat kebenaran mulia, Siddhartha akan mendukung praktek – praktek seperti itu.
