Letting Go of Spiritual Experience | May 14, 2015
the overall context of the spiritual journey, it is important to
remember that self-transformation is a continuous process, not a onetime
event. One cannot say, 'I used to be a nonspiritual person, but now I
have been transformed into a spiritual person. My old self is dead.' We
are constantly being transformed when we travel on the path.
- Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche, "Letting Go of Spiritual Experience"
