We have achieved a lot in Dharma education and study. Now we have to put effort into attaining the path. I don’t mean just doing a three-year retreat and counting a certain number of mantras, but the attainment of the path through the lam-rim.
Realizations don’t have to come from being in formal retreat, you can achieve them while working and studying with meditation on the lam-rim. You can be doing business and studying and meditating on the lam-rim. You can have family and a job, and be meditating on the lam-rim. The main thing now is attainment.
