H.H. the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa –
varying inspirations and thoughts 

When we look at each other, it is very much like seeing the reflection of ourselves. If at first we are caught by our afflictive emotions and karma then, when we look at each other, we might see the reflection of those afflictive emotions and negative karmas. But if we concentrate on our pure nature, on our enlightened nature, and then look at each other, then we will see exactly that.
