Preliminaries

1972410_656014707787248_2492592580534451744_nAwareness of impermanence and disgust with samsara are the external preliminaries on the Noble Path.

They thoroughly dispel the preoccupation with ordinary life.

Compassion and ethical conduct are the special preliminaries.

They make advancement possible on the Great Vehicle of the Mahayana.

Therefore, at the beginning, cultivate these preliminaries.

—Longchenpa
