The Buddha said that two things are essential: study and practice. Gampopa advised people to study first. The Kagyu is known as the practice lineage, and meditation plays a central role; it is the lineage of experience and realization. Like Milarepa, we have to receive the instructions, and then put them into practice. This involves hardship and effort.
