Wisdom must serve as medicine

Even if we know a lot about Dharma, we still need to integrate our knowledge with our experience or we won’t be able to reduce our habit of me and mine. Wisdom must serve as medicine; it’s ineffective if it never counteracts our poison or illness. An intellectual knowledge of Dharma is not enough; we have to apply the wisdom to our lives. Using our experience as the bridge between our knowledge and real understanding is where practice comes in

– Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche
