Sometimes accidentally, perhaps when touched by extraordinary beauty and grace, mind breaks free of its regime and seeks simply to be.

Then we may glimpse the clarity that mind can convey in even the most humble surroundings, without the supports of wealth and power.

Although our habitual patterns soon return, having glimpsed this extraordinary new face of mind, we may wish to explore more deeply what we may not have noticed before.

Revelations of Mind

Quotes p 107

Thinking that “there is always time” we put things off to the future. We would never be so casual about loaning our money, especially if we know we would never get it back. We do not have enough time to spare.

Quotes of Wisdom Exhibit

University of Montana – Missoula, Montana

September 2 throughout the fall semester

University Center

Sundeck at Branch Center – 2nd Floor

Quotes p 105

It has more to do with pursuing our highest ideals and values. For instance, it might have to do with helping others— our family, our friends, our community—or making a contribution to humanity. It might have to do with advancing knowledge or creating beauty.

Your values may be very different from someone else’s, and that is fine.

But the question to ask is whether you are letting time go by in activities that have nothing to do with your own sense of what’s important. That’s what I mean by getting a good return on investment.

Dimensions of Mind

Contemplative Spaces

Recently, we have launched a new initiative: creating contemplative spaces that will feature “Quotes of Wisdom.” 

These are spaces of beauty, quietude, inspiration and reflection — spaces that create a natural sense of curiosity and inquiry, a pause in the daily routine, free from the busyness and distractions of everyday life. 

The simple environment of contemplative space invites you to take an empty folio, and look around at quotations displayed in pocket holders. Each holder contains a quote from Tarthang Tulku’s books. Visitors can take as many quotes as they like, place them in the insert in the folio, and sit and reflect or take them home.

The proposal to create Quotes of Wisdom Exhibits has been received with open arms by universities throughout the country. So far this fall the Quotes of Wisdom exhibit will open to students, faculty and the public:

  • Wellesley College
  • Montana State University
  • University of Montana
  • Stanford University
  • Dharma College
  • University of California – Berkeley

Discussions have begun with:

  • Tufts University
  • Trinity University
  • Flathead Valley Community College

More contemplative spaces are expected to be forthcoming this fall.

The “Quotes of Wisdom Exhibit” seems to speak to a time where people are sincerely interested in finding balance and harmony in a world filled with discord, confusion, fear and emotionality. The opportunity to reflect on insights in a contemplative space provides a fresh way of connecting to a deeper understanding of human potential.

Quotes P 99

Stars have a gentle quality; we can feel them watching over us tenderly.

After a long day of hard work, our bodies may be bone tired, yet as we gaze upward we can sense that at the deepest level there is a profound and limitless beauty. This beauty is effortless, and it is perfect.

There are no leaks in the roof of the sky; here, at the end of the day, we don’t have to put up ladders to repair the constellations. We can rest, and receive the outpouring of light, and let the gates of our mind open.
