The point of training in higher knowledge

Screen Shot 2013-03-04 at 8.53.06 AMThe point of training in higher knowledge is not to become a container of facts or a believer in any particular philosophical system.

The whole point is to clearly see what is truth and what is illusion in how we live.

It means we understand the relationship of cause and effect, and we see how it functions in our life.

We see that suffering is the natural result of a certain cause and that ultimately that cause is our own self-clinging.

We see that happiness is the result of a certain cause and that ultimately that cause is transcending our self-clinging.

–Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche
