Continuous practice with continuing effort is essential when trying to implement Buddha’s teachings. Inner development naturally takes time and cannot be achieved within a short period. It is quite normal and completely to be expected, as I have confirmed from my own limited practice, that gaining even the smallest level of actual experience of what the teachings describe requires many years of unbroken hard work. So, naturally, we must make effort continuously, with courage and determination.
H. H. the Dalai Lama, from The Gelug/Kagyü Tradition of Mahamudra
