How the teachings encompass keeping vows and tantric commitments, and applying them in your daily life.
Although you applied yourself in the practice of the view, meditation and conduct as described above, if you were unskillful in post-meditation’s conduct, and your vows and tantric commitments were damaged, impediments and obstacles will hinder your progress on the paths and spiritual stages in the short term, and ultimately you will certainly fall to the lowest hell called Incessant Pain. Therefore, it is extremely important to never be separate from vigilant mindfulness, not making any mistakes regarding the kind of conduct to accept and which to reject.
Dudjom Jigdral Yeshe Dorje (1904 – 1987), the second Dudjom Rinpoche, was the head of the Nyingma lineage of Tibetan Buddhism.
