Meditate & Forget

Milarepa1Having meditated on love and compassion,

I forgot the difference between myself and others.

Having meditated on my teacher,

I forgot those who are influential and powerful.

Having meditated on the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas,

I forgot the coarse world of the senses.

Having meditated on the instruction of the oral tradition,

I forgot the books of dialectics.

Having meditated on the joys of solitude,

I forgot the need to please my relatives and friends.

Having assimilated the teaching in the stream of my consciousness,

I forgot to engage in doctrinal polemics.

Having lived in simplicity of body and mind,

I forgot the disdain and arrogance of the great.

Having made a monastery within this body,

I forgot the monastery of bricks and mortar.

Having embraced the spirit rather than the letter,

I forgot how to play with words.

―Milarepa
