Advice from a Kadampa masterPosted: February 23, 2012
“What is the difference between Dharma and non-Dharma?” the teacher Dromtönpa was asked by Potowa.
“If something is in opposition to fettering passions, it is Dharma. If it is not, it is not Dharma. If it does not accord with worldly people, it is Dharma. If it does accord, it is not Dharma. If it accords with the teachings of Buddha, it is Dharma. If it does not accord, it is not Dharma. If good follows, it is Dharma. If bad follows, it is not Dharma.”
