Gem of Wisdom for Daily Reflection: 

The Benefits of Ordination

Teaching at Palyul Tibetan Buddhist Meditation Centre, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK

In ‘The Benefits of Ordination’, Lama Dondrup Dorje explains the right motivation for the ordained, of recognising the preciousness of human rebirth, the unsatisfactoriness of samsaric existence, and the need to cultivate the Higher Practice of Ethics. Lama Dondrup Dorje went on to explain the qualities of being ordained, and how the precepts of the ordained offer protection which enables past karma to become purified.
