The ‘sparkling smile of primordial buddha’


“In the space where thoughts of sadness are groundless and rootless,
One meets one’s own mind as the sparkling smile of primordial buddha.
The laughing dance of the little boy with cheerfulness and insight,
Liberates happiness and sorrow in the dharmakaya space of equal flavor.”

— Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, in a letter to Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, from Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche‘s introduction to “Brilliant Moon,” the autobiography of Dilgo Khyentse.
