Thekchen Chöling, Dharamsala, HP, India, 2 June 2016 - This morning His Holiness the Dalai Lama arrived at the Tsuglagkhang, greeted those seated around the throne and took his seat. The ‘Heart of Wisdom Sutra’ was recited, followed by Nagarjuna’s verse of homage to the Buddha. His Holiness then cited a verse that summarizes the Buddha’s teaching:
Commit not a single unwholesome deed,
Cultivate a wealth of virtue,
To completely tame this mind of ours—
This is the teaching of the Buddhas.
It happens that this verse is inscribed on a sign in Tibetan, Hindi and English on the wall behind the throne and beside the statue of the Buddha.
