"This is the principle of warriorship: overwhelming odds do not daunt us. In fact, as more challenges arise, the courage and vigor of the warrior increase. So with the proper training, we are able to see the confusion of this dark age as an opportunity to sharpen our weapons of gentleness, fearlessness, and precision."
- Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, "Are We Basically Good?", Shambhala Sun, May 2013
