Summer Solstice

Intention is the karma of the mind.

­ Gunaprabha, The Treasury of Abhidharma

Nagarjuna writes:

Amassing wealth, watching over it and making it grow will wear you out.Understand that riches bring unending ruin and destruction.

--The Words of My Perfect Teacher, Patrul Rinpoche, Shambhala

Through the force of its habitual tendencies, the confused mind manifests as the illusory appearance of a variety of colors, shapes, forms, sounds, smells, tastes, tangible objects, and sensations.

--The IX Gyalwa Karmapa, The Ocean of Definitive Meaning
