The First Glimpse of Prajna

It is as if we were entering a school to study a certain discipline with great, wise, learned people. The first self-conscious awareness we would have is a sense of our own ignorance, how we feel extraordinarily stupid, clumsy, and dumb. At the same time, we begin to get wind of the knowledge; otherwise, we would have no reference point to experience ourselves being dumb. The first glimpse of prajna is like that.

– Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, “A Very Practical Joke”

May you be free from suffering and the causes of suffering!

All my best,
