TAKING DELIGHT IN OUR HERITAGE
The Practice Lineage of the Kagyu tradition inspires one to become fully involved in a heartfelt connection to the teachings….The Kagyu tradition is said to be the most stubborn and honest in following its heritage. We take delight in our heritage. Doubt, challenge, hesitation — in brief, any form of second thoughts — are not regarded as obstacles, but rather as fuel to push us further and cause our devotion and heartfelt longing to blaze, to increase our intense desire to follow the example of our forefathers. So we, as Kagyus, have thrived on the transmissions of our forefathers….As for myself, the older I get, the more of a Kagyu person I become. Aging in this way is wonderful. My thanks and appreciation to the forefathers.
