Beseeching

Image result for gampopa sonam rinchenAlthough you have realized the meaning of non-duality, I beseech you not to abandon virtue.

Although you have realized the meaning of non-meditation, I beseech you not to abandon the practice of method.

Although there is nothing to accept or reject in your behavior, I beseech you not to become a condition for others’ negative karma.

Although there is no expectation or doubt regarding the result, I beseech you not to give your mind a free rein to indulge in negative emotions.

—Gampopa Sonam Rinchen

    Gampopa’s words have rung a bell, for I often wonder “since everything is empty, of what use are words like ‘good/bad’, ‘right/wrong’…which guide our words/actions?” I beseech myself to follow his advice…many thanks, cheryla
