In the same way, if distracting thoughts arise during our meditation we should not follow them but, by keeping our mind focused on the object of meditation, let them pass without trace. - from Meditations for a Clear Mind CD
“There are many people who have become Buddhas in the past, and all living beings will become Buddhas in the future.” - The New Heart of Wisdom by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
