Challenges

May I recall that the paramis cannot be cultivated in isolation. Without irritation how can one practice patience? Without temptation how can one practice sila? May I never cease to perceive all obstacles and challenges as the stepping stones to Liberation. May I always guard my heart against aversion and hatred and may I recognize that all beings have the potential to become buddhas.
