drawing on water

The company of small swans,Sweetly singing and training their wings,Reminds me of practicing the different types of loving-kindness;In my estate of this empty valley,Relying on the pure, cool water from snow mountains,I’m going to capture the kingdom of experience and realization!I decided that from now on I don’t need anything;The countless joys and sorrows of this life,Whatever I experienced in the past, are like drawing on water. -Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche-
