Once and for all, give up the deluded way of living which comes from being obsessed with this life. Give up bogus acts of virtue motivated by the eight worldly concerns*. Give up View that is just talk, Meditation that is just error and deviation, and Action that is perverse. Give up bigoted squabbling, and feigning to benefit beings simply out of a desire for fame and fortune. None of them will provide even the most meager cause for Buddhahood.
Exterminate the eight worldly concerns. Rid yourself of the preoccupations of this life. Don’t be proud and self-important. Just take the practice of the confidential path of the Vajrayana to heart, strive to apply compassion to your mind, and the benefit of you and others will be accomplished, spontaneously. […]
Please, please, do what I say. Be determined, and have courage!
