Sample text

When one perfects all these trainings, there is no need to learn any more. When one purifies, completely annihilates, all the subtle obscurations through the vajra-like absorption, the all-pervading primordial wisdom blossoms. This is called the path of all-pervading wisdom. When one realizes this level, there is nothing more to dispel and nothing to add. It transcends all the conceptions of duality and actualizes the primordial mind as such. This is called the path of perfection and is Buddhahood.

So, if you want to be free of all boundaries and confusion, then without choice this path must be followed. Chapter 18: The Aspects of the Five Paths The mental development of wisdom and compassion described in the first seventeen chapters, in which one purifies the different levels of obscuration, is fully cultivated through five paths. The first is called the path of accumulation. Through study and training in the four foundations-the rarity and preciousness of human life and its opportunities; the impermanence of all compound phenomena, including precious human life; the all-pervading suffering of samsara; and inexorable karmic causation-one gets a clear understanding of the need to free oneself from sam sara and attain enlightenment.

This makes you a good human being and makes it worthwhile to have a precious human life. So, whether in the conventional life or spiritual, strive on a day-today basis to bring joy and happiness. For spiritual progress toward enlightenment, the practice of patience is one of the most important trainings because it eliminates delusion and hatred. 36 The Jewel Ornament of Liberation Chapter 15: The Perfection of Perseverance Perseverance is like a special "hand" with which to collect the wealth of virtues, wisdom, and compassion.
