金剛乘修持的勇氣
 
特別是來到金剛乘修持的時候,我們必須要有一定程度的勇氣,一定程度的精神力量,同時帶著心的開放與柔軟。這種特質並不是說我們被一個接一個的念頭隔開或佔據了。而是我們應該有一種意願,並伴隨著開放的心,去瞭解如何修持。這種內在膽識的素質在金剛乘里非常重要:這種膽識不是侵略性的,好像隨時準備好要跟任何反對你的人打架一樣;相反的,是準備好去做任何該做的事。這是非常重要的素質。
 
Fearless Simplicity(中譯大圓滿生活), p. 36---發心
 
Particularly when we come to Vajrayana practice, we must also have a certain amount of courage, a certain kind of mental strength, and together with that, an openness and softness of heart. This quality does not mean we are spaced-out or preoccupied with one thought after an- other. Rather, we should have a willingness to understand how to practice, along with the open-mindedness. This quality of inner boldness is very important in Vajrayana: being bold not in an aggressive way, as when you're ready to fight whoever opposes you, but rather being ready to do whatever needs to be done. That is a very important quality.
