The Importance of Patient Practice

"By degree, little by little, from time to time,

A wise man should remove his impurities,

As a silversmith removes the impurities from silver."

Even if one does not attain Nirvana in this life, one's effort is not wasted. First, one experience contentment, harmony, peace and prosperity in this life and the next. Eventually one achieves the supreme happiness and peace of Nirvana.
