A Song on the Six Perfections

 

For generosity, nothing to do

Other than cease fixating on self.

 

For morality, nothing to do

Other than cease being dishonest.

 

For patience, nothing to do

Other than not fear what is ultimately true.

 

For effort, nothing to do

Other than practice continuously.

 

For concentration, nothing to do

Other than rest in pure presence.

 

For discernment, nothing to do

Other than know things directly as they are.

—Milarepa

 

About Tashi Nyima

I am a Dharma student, and aspire to be a companion on the path. I trust that these texts can offer a general approach and basic tools for practicing the Buddha's way to enlightenment. ||| Soy un estudiante del Dharma, y aspiro a ser un compañero en el sendero.
