"Avalokitesvara [Chenrezig, Christ], gazes with overwhelming compassion towards all the six classes of sentient beings, who are tormented by misery. The compassion that has the Dharma as its focus is the six syllables of om manipadme hum. […] The virtues of the six syllables are immeasurable and cannot be fully described even by the buddhas of the three times. Why is that? It is because this mantra is the quintessence of the mind of the noble Avalokitesvara, who continually looks upon the six classes of sentient beings with compassion. Thus, the recitation of this mantra liberates all beings from samsara." - Padmasambhava, from Sanglingma “The Lotus Born”

"Lustful people do not enter the path of liberation." - Padmasambhava, from oral instructions to Lady Tsogyal

"As your life runs out like the setting sun sinking away, Death closes in like the lengthening shadows of evening. Now what's left of your life will vanish as fast as the fading shadows; There's no time to waste–recite the six-syllable mantra. The six-syllable mantra, although perfect as Dharma, Is fruitless recited while chatting and looking around; And to cling to the number recited is to miss the point outright. Undistractedly watching the mind, recite the six-syllable mantra. - Patrul Rinpoche, The Heart Treasure of the Enlightened Ones

"Wherever we direct our attention, we spend creative energy. We can save creative energy if we divide attention, if we do not become identified with things, people, and ideas. When we become identified with things, people, and ideas, we then forget our Self and lose creative energy in the most pitiful way. It is essential to know that we need to save creative energy in order to awaken the consciousness, and that the creative energy is the living potential, it is the vehicle of the consciousness, it is the instrument in order to awaken the consciousness."
