Ten Aspects of Mindfulness

Mindfulness which is still and quiet, mindfulness which is pure, mindfulness which is not turbid, mindfulness which is bright and penetrating, mindfulness which is apart from defilement, mindfulness which is apart from stains, mindfulness which is apart from corruption, mindfulness which is bright and dazzling, mindfulness which is pleasing, and mindfulness which is free from obstacles  

—when Bodhisattvas dwell in these aspects of mindfulness, nothing in the world can disturb or unsettle them. No strange theories can move them. Their good roots from past lives are made pure and they are not defiled by or attached to any phenomenon in the world.  

The multitudes of enemies and materialists cannot destroy them. They can undergo rebirth and receive different bodies without any lapse in memory. They proclaim the Dharma endlessly throughout the past, present, and future.  

The Flower Adornment Sutra (Avatamsaka Sutra), 22.129
