. . . These are the heart jewels of all Buddhists: Intense renunciation, faith, and devotion diligent in practicing the sacred dharma without laziness or procrastination and guarding the tantric commitments as you do your eyes.
Always cultivate compassion and the mind of awakening for sentient beings who were our mothers, and do what you can to help them: This is the training for heirs of the Victorious Ones.
Realization that all phenomena of samsara and enlightenment are empty and recognition of one’s own awareness as dharmakaya constitutes the sovereign view.
To settle in this unfabricated present awareness’s own ground
without distraction, grasping, or thought is meditation.
Not to be careless in body, speech, and mind and to align your behavior with the dharma are the practical instructions for perfect conduct. . . .
