Extinguish the scorching flames of anger with the water of loving-kindness.
Cross the river of desire on the bridge of powerful remedies.
Light the torch of discriminating knowledge in the darkness of stupidity.
Crumble the mountain of pride to the ground with the hammer of diligence.
Overcome the storm of envy by wearing the warm garment of patience.
—Guru Rinpoche Padmasambhava
