Our mind must rest in its true nature ~ H.E. Garchen Rinpoche

When others are speaking ill about us, we have to say to ourselves that this is caused by momentary birth of thoughts in their mind. Then we have to vow to not be like them and speak such words. This is especially true after having received empowerment in Mantrayana; all sounds are the sounds of Mantrayana, which is no different from vows or commitments that we utter. The sounds emanated are empty, without substance, which is no different from its true nature. If we think that sounds have substance and are real, and generate desire and hatred thoughts then this will damage the speech and vows that we utter. Therefore we must understand that sound is emptiness, and we must not be affected by it. Our mind must rest in its true nature.
