Updated: Dec 15, 2021

Enjoy this read aloud of Rest is Best! recorded in Tso Pema, India, the home of Ziji Rinpoche‘s root teacher Venerable Wangdor Rimpoche ❤️🙏❤️

Rest is Best! is an ode to self love.

‘I must be kind to myself. Every minute, I must be kind to myself. Kind to my body, kind to my mind, kind in my words.

Rest my body. Rest my words. Rest my mind. So kind

I can even give myself a hug’

'Resting the mind. Resting the impulse to behave in certain ways - this is self compassion. Self compassion flowers compassion for everyone. - Ziji Rinpoche

‘Even when I have big feelings... or small feelings,resting my mind is the very best way to be kind to myself.’

'This is certainly the pith of the teaching right here. Resting the mind. What could be more compassionate than a practice that introduces the nature of mind and then offers the simple teaching: 'short moments of mind, repeated many times, becomes automatic.' This is the most compassionate, straightforward, forthcoming teaching we could ever expect to hear. It is the teaching of all goodness.'

- Ziji Rinpoche.
