Elegance

October 12, 2011

Elegance here means appreciating things as they are. Things as you are and things as they are. There is a sense of delight and of fearlessness. You are not fearful of dark corners. If there are any dark, mysterious corners, black and confusing, you override them with your glory, your sense of beauty, your sense of cleanness, your feeling of being regal. Because you can override fearfulness in this way, tantra, or the highest stage in Tibetan Buddhist practice, is known as the king of all the yanas or stages on the path. You take an attitude of having perfectly complete and very rich basic sanity.

From Ocean of Dharma: The Everyday Wisdom of Chogyam Trungpa, quote 148.
