Message from His Holiness The Sakya Trizin:
Everyone wants to be happy, and the only way to find true peace and happiness is to follow the religious path. Equally, once we have engaged on the religious path, it is very important that we study, so that we can progress swiftly along it. There are many texts and scriptures that can help us deepen our understanding of the Dharma.
“The Elegant Sayings” is such a text. It is one of the most famous works by the great master Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyaltsen. In this book, the great scholar offers precious advice on how to live a virtuous life and how to avoid non-virtuous behavior.
His witty and to-the-point analysis of what is noble and scholarly and what is foolish and untoward is an important teaching on what is to be adopted and what is to be rejected before one can become a true Dharma practitioner.
The study of the Dharma is a hugely meritorious activity that benefits not only oneself but also everyone that surrounds one. I truly rejoice that a program of Dharma study has been put in place at Sakya Tenphel Ling, and I fervently pray that many practitioners will participate in it and thus make great strides along the path to enlightenment, for the sake of all beings.
