The very purpose of the Vajrayana is, breaking away from the concept of perfection, and going beyond the belief of perfection, going beyond the belief of good and bad, yet at the same time finding the true quality of mind within, finding the strength and wisdom within, and being centralized with the enlightened mind. So that is the Vajrayana mindset. People tend to think that Vajrayana is something like a different tradition. But it is not. We have to focus on the Mahayana tradition, and then after that, applying the Vajrayana tradition can be beneficial. Many people they would like to have a shortcut. There is no shortcut. As long as you follow the ignorance and the negative emotions, regardless of different traditions, different methods, it will not really help. Therefore renunciation is very very important. As I have been reminding all of you again and again.
With love and respect from your Kalu Rinpoche
