Shitro and the deceased: ¿signs of success?

Post by javier.espinoza.t » Wed Dec 05, 2018 9:18 pm

Hello,

I would like to ask for typical signs of success in the help for the deceased person to whom the shitro practice is dedicated.

afaik there is a 1 and 1/2 month tops for the process to conclude, so during this period practice should be dedicated every day preferably at the same hour.

¿how can i know with certainty that the deceased is good, happy and at peace? ¿is one dream or vision something concluding? mind can be tricky, so i would like to know a way to make it clear.

Feel free to PM me if needsby.

Cheers!

Since the meditation is without meditating, leave your individual experience free from fixation.
Since the conduct is without acting, it is unfabricated naturalness.
Since the fruition is without abandoning or achieving, it is the dharmakaya of great bliss.
These four sentences are words from my heart:

There is some kind of grass that you can put on your altar as an effigy, but I forget what the signs are, if any.

Signs of failure also are useful
