Question: ‘I’m trying very hard in my practice but don’t seem to be getting anywhere.’

A spontaneous Vajra song

Wanting to grasp the ungraspable,
You exhaust yourself in vain.
As soon as you open and relax this tight fist of grasping,
Infinite space is there-open, inviting and comfortable.

— The Venerable Lama Gandun Rinpoche
