Title: Treasury of Precious Qualities
Sub Title: A commentary on the Root Text of Jigme Lingpa
Summary: "IN OUR PRESENT SITUATION, all the Causes of physical and mental suffering: beating, fighting, robbing, slander and the like, seem to come from other people, But the Cause of them all is in ourselves, They are like booming echoes returning to their source, Indeed, if we had no ego-clinching, there would be no one for the enemy to attack; so we should reflect on the way situations of conflict are called forth by our own past actions. Moreover, if we think about it, we can see that patience can only ever arise in adversity, which is consequently not negative but extremely beneficial.

Moreover, if we think about it, we can see that patience can only ever arise in adversity, which is consequently not negative but extremely beneficial. Thanks to the hostility of enemies, we can embark on the ship of patience and sail upon the ocean of the Mahayana, gaining for ourselves the precious jewel of bodhichitta, the source of immediate and ultimate benefit for self and others. Enemies should therefore be looked upon as the object and source of patience. They are as worthy of offerings as the scared Dharma itself!"
