A travel guide cannot force us to make the journey – he or she can only indicate the way. We have to get ourselves to the airport and on the plane. Just so, the Buddha cannot force us to practice. He gives the teachings and shows by his example how to do it, but we have to do it ourselves. - Thuibten Chodron
