When you have a human body so difficult to achieve

Alas!  Listen, intelligent woman!

When you have a human body so difficult to achieve,
Do not get involved in many distractions and busy-ness:
Achieve your lasting goals.

In whatever virtue you accomplish, great or small, Three stages-preparation, main practice, and conclusion-must must be complete.
At all times, compassionately accomplish whatever you can to help others.

To recognize samsara and enlightenment as great emptiness
And one’s own unformulated awareness as primordial wisdom:
These are the sovereign view.

To settle in this view evenly within the natural state is meditation.

Not to allow your actions and behavior to slip into carelessness
And to align them with the Dharma is the supreme form of conduct.
Place these instructions in the center of your heart.

I, Vajra Jnana, wrote this in response to Vakapasham’s request.
