If we are being mindful for one minute then this minute we are diligent - Longchen Nyingthig Vietnam

If we are being mindful for one minute then this minute we are diligent

Diligence always something to do with the Dharma, with understanding and with the mindfulness. To make it clearer, I think if we are being mindful for one minute, for example, then this minute we are diligent. Although you are sitting there and reciting some mantras, doing your [turning] prayer wheels, but if your mind is sitting there blindly and that is not diligent, that is not mindful. So mindful is always diligent. We have to understand that Dharma practice is always something to do with your understanding, always something to do with your awareness.
