Rays of the Sun : Whole-hearted intention

"When we open our perception, we do not feel constrained to anticipate events or people's possible reactions. We stop registering every being detected by our perceptual sonar in terms of our preconceptions. Perception then begins to expand beyond its set boundaries. Once perception has begun to open we're led naturally toward the liberation in our responses, which is known as whole-hearted intention."

p33, Rays of the Sun, Ngakpa Chögyam, Aro Books worldwide, 2010, 978-1-898185-06-2

Rays of the Sun : Karmic law is directly consequential

"The ‘Law of Karma’ is different from externally enforced societal law, because ‘karmic law’ is directly consequential and self-implementing. We perceive the world in a certain way, and react to it in accordance with that style of perception. That is what is meant by karma. There’s no injustice in this kind of ‘law’ apart from the injustice to the nondual state perpetrated by karmic patterning."

Shock Amazement : The desire to be in charge

"The nature of existence continually helps and hinders the search for definition in a completely impartial manner. The problem is the desire to be in charge of the defining process. This is a highly complicated procedure – but it is so customary, that it is hardly noticed. Rather than allowing continual re-definition (and occasionally lack of definition), the prevalent impetus is to attempt domination of the mutually defining and un-defining process which constitutes the flux of reality."

p32, Shock Amazement : The four naljors and four ting-ngé’dzin from the Dzogchen series of the nature of Mind. Khandro Déchen and Ngakpa Chögyam, Aro Books Worldwide, 2018, ISBN 978-1-898185-45-1

Rays of the Sun : Taking refuge in the three jewels

"Taking refuge in the three jewels-Buddha, dharma and sangha--means to rely on the as it is-ness of the Buddha-the realised exemplar of actuality; the dharma-the expression of actuality; and the sangha-those who aspire to experience actuality."

p85, Rays of the Sun, Ngakpa Chögyam, Aro Books worldwide, 2010, 978-1-898185-06-2
