Seven Points

Like bubbles in water, all compounded things are impermanent.

Like a ripe poisonous fruit, all samsaric pleasures, though seemingly pleasant at the time, are painful.

Like chasing the water of a mirage, conditioned states are never-ending.

Like the good or bad experiences in a dream, all worldly concerns are utterly meaningless.

Like a person recovered from smallpox, the excellent fruition of liberation never reverts to suffering.

Like a fine staircase, a sublime teacher’s oral instructions are the path for ascending to liberation.

Like a cultivated field, nonconceptual meditation is the basis for the growth of samadhi.

About Tashi Nyima

I am a Dharma student, and aspire to be a companion on the path. I trust that these texts can offer a general approach and basic tools for practicing the Buddha's way to enlightenment. ||| Soy un estudiante del Dharma, y aspiro a ser un compañero en el sendero. Espero que estos textos ofrezcan a algunos un mapa general y herramientas básicas para la práctica del sendero a la iluminación que nos ofrece el Buda.
