path is like a boat

Maitreya said: “A path has to be abandoned.” Path is like a boat, you go to the other shore, use the boat, you reach the other shore. What do you do? You abandon the boat. You don’t stand on the boat because boat looks beautiful. Because otherwise you are not on the other shore. Yes the boat looks beautiful, boat is so smooth, boat is so, and you had the best time with this boat. But your aim is to reach the other shore. Likewise, when you reach the Buddhahood, not only the Vajrayana, all the other yanas are gone. Has to be.
