Geshe Acharya Thubten Loden, the peerless master and great scholar who founded the Tibetan Buddhist Society likened the Path to Enlightenment to a master key. A master key in a hotel opens all the doors, and likewise, the Path to Enlightenment opens the doors to so many realisations.
If you feel a bit down, then why not step through the door to greater wellbeing and joy? Try practising the path to enlightenment: If stressed and anxious, why not unlock the door of calm abiding? When upset and angry, try opening the door to great patience that is like a still, deep lake. If seeking a deeper connection to your heart and purpose in life, then the radiant door of compassion, love and bodhichitta may be attractive.
Or if curious, you may venture to the threshold of the most profound door, the wisdom knowing the ultimate nature of reality – egolessness, selflessness, emptiness. With so many doors to choose from, do you go for the red, blue or green one? Fortunately, we don’t have to pick, as the master key – the Path to Enlightenment opens them all. Bonus!
