Milarepa said, “My religion is to have nothing to be ashamed of when I die.“ But the majority of people do not give any importance to this way of thinking.
We pretend to be very calm and subdued and are full of sweet words, so that ordinary people, not knowing our thoughts, say, “This is a real Bodhisattva.“ But it is only our outward behaviour that they see.
The important thing is not to do anything that we might have to regret later on. Therefore we should examine ourselves honestly.
