I remember Venerable Thubten Chodron once saying that with new monastics, one of the first things they develop is a type of transparency. This comes from having developed self acceptance and not being afraid of any faults or weakpoints. I’ve thought about this a lot over the years, and have noticed this to be a common quality among many long time practitioners.

In this video, Venerable Chodron reflects on her own experience of moving towards “self-honesty” and how it moved her closer to the “three jewels.”
