“When you become a Buddhist, it seems that the problem of personal shortcomings is difficult to deal with and this perhaps can be discouraging. How then does a person deal with what he knows to be his own imperfections and shortcomings so that he will not be discouraged?” ~Question

“One has to understand the nature of these shortcomings and limitations. Once we realize that our habitual patterns have caused us problems and we have started on a path, we begin to understand the need to transform these patterns.

In Buddhism, we talk of different methods and different techniques that one could use in cutting through neurotic patterns and our shortcomings. Once you are able to apply these methods and teachings, you are able to understand the importance of their application and sense the benefits, one has no doubt about it. Once you have experienced the benefits you can change your patterns for good.”
~H.H. Karmapa
