Buddhadharma : Spring 2018
MATTHIEU RICARD 97 The third opportunity occurs during the teachings, another chance to know one’s goal and set one’s intention: Each instant, put your heart into it again. Each moment, remind yourself again. Each second, check yourself again. Night and day, make your resolve again. In the morning, commit yourself again. Each meditation session, examine mind minutely. Never be apart from dharma, not even accidentally. Continually, do not forget. When people staying at Patrul Gar just weren’t getting the point, Patrul would actually send them away. “You are fooling me and I am fooling you; it’s pointless!” Patrul would say. “Get out, go away, do something useful with your life! Go away, get married, do business, have children! What’s the point of not being a practitioner and not being a worldly person? Go be a worldly person, just remember to have a good heart!” Last Days anD houRs Patrul began experiencing problems with his health. From the thirteenth day of the fourth lunar month of the Male Fire Pig Year (1887), he reported feeling a bit unwell. To whatever people would ask him, he would reply, in a rather unusual fashion, “Do what you like. You know better.” His physician, Jampel, who was also the chieftain of Ling La (a nomadic community), was summoned. Longlife ceremonies were performed on Patrul’s behalf. photo | Matthieu Ricard
