The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

The noble disciples cultivate the mind

The mind is luminous, but it is stained by defilements that come from without. Ordinary folk do not realize this, so they do not cultivate the mind. The mind is luminous, but it can be cleansed of defilements that come from without. This the noble disciples understand, so they do cultivate the mind.


– Buddha
