No one method

There is no one method for attaining enlightenment.

 

To regard any method as the method is to create a duality,

which can only delay your understanding of the subtle truth.

 

The wise perceive the fruitlessness of rigid,

external methodologies;

Remembering this, they keep their attitude unstructured at all times

and thus are always free to pursue the Dharma.

 

They study the teachings of the preceptors.

They dissolve all concepts of duality.

They pour themselves out in service to others.

 

They perform their inner cleansing

and do not disturb their teachers with unnecessary entanglements,

thus preserving the subtle spiritual connection with the teacher’s energy.

 

Gently eliminating all obstacles to their own understanding,

they constantly maintain their unconditional sincerity.

 

Their humility, perseverance, and adaptability

evoke the response of the Buddhas and fill them with light.

    Thank you for the non-sectarian statement, which is the true spirit of Buddhism and, I would like to believe, religious traditions everywhere. Our paths are many but the alleviation of misery and the growth of happiness are what we all wish for all beings.
