A Quote by Tsiang Samdup on womenswisdom

. .if a woman does a useless thing, none reproves her; if she does a harmful thing, few seek to restrain her; but if she seeks to imitate the goddess and to encourage others, all those in authority accuse her of corruption. So it is more dangerous to teach truth than to enter a powder magazine with a lighted torch.

Tsiang Samdup seems to be a male, who may or may not have been or be a real person. The  quote speaks for itself.

which is exactly what it is - a miracle and unrepeatable.

Can you accept the moments of anger and fear as guests,
be willing to receive them with kindness without
feeling obliged to serve them a five-course meal?
