Example text

The mental consciousness we live with at the moment is very coarse. Afilicted by distraction and agitation, it is unable to grasp higher vision~ Deeper truth cannot be perceived in its actual mode. Therefore we must develop one-pointed concentration and refine the mind. The concentrated mind is the mind of samadhi. To gain the mind of samadhi, which is free from even subtle mental agitation, we must first gain control over our activities of body and speech. When body and speech are controlled, the higher qualities of mind are easily cultivated.

One rhay ga:in countless samadhis And accomplish the meditative absorptions Of the four realms of form and formlessness, Yet this will not give one the strength With which to cross samsara's ocean. 35. Relying on the bodhimind as one's carriage, Constantly prod the horses With the iron whip of mindfulness of death. accomplish fearless Buddhahood. 36. Abiding in thoughts of refuge, Higher discipline and spiritual aspiration, Take upon yourself the oath of a Bodhisattva And gradually work in accordance with your capacity Through all the Bodhisattva practices.

34 4. Abandon hesitant attitudes And apply yourself·boldly in practice.. Lessen sleep, apathy and laziness And apply. yourself with zealous energy. 5. Guard the doorways of experience With mindfulness, alertness and vigilance. Three times each day and night Formally observe the streams of your thoughts. 6. Be like an eye always seeing your own faults But be like a blind person toward the faults of others. Be without arrogance and pride, Meditating constantly on the meaning of emptiness and non-self.
