A song for the brave


In the sky of the mind, the song of truth is like a gentle breeze;


It is refreshing, it is sweet, it is caressing, it is good.


Now this basic truth of humanity has been transmitted to you


Cherish it like a small ember of delight in this dark world of doubt


When you feel scared, be gentle and don't panic


Wait a brief moment, touch your heart;


Feel vulderable and strong, then relax


When you find yourself at the crossroads of genuineness and deception,


Be brave


Proclaim your basic goodness, and do not forget that you are human


Realize that this power of goodness is your birthright


When you feel confident


You can kiss the sky


Smile, for this is the gift of humanity.



Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, written for a sangha retreat in Dechen Chöling, 2011
