Six words of advice.

6 words of advice.

1. Don't recall/ Let go of what has passed/ mi mno
2. Don't imagine/ Let go of what may come/ mi bsam
3. Don't think/ Let go of what is happening now/ mi shes
4. Don't examine/ Don't try to figure anything out/ mi dpyod
5. Don't control/ Don't try to make anything happen/ mi sgom
6. Rest/ Relax, right now, and rest/ rang sar bzhag


Mahamudra Instructions

Tilopa also gave to Naropa Mahamudra instructions

The fool in his ignorance, disdaining Mahamudra, knows nothing but struggle in the flood of samsara.
Have compassion for those who suffer constant anxiety!
Sick of unrlenting pain and desiring release, adhere to a master,
For when his blessing touches your heart, the mind is liberating.


Attachment and enjoyment
One of the most famous and important statements attributed to Tilopa is: "The problem is not enjoyment, the problem is attachment."

Drigung Kyabgon Chetsang Rinpoche writes:
“Sustain the fresh, non-arising mind without delusion.
In this uncontrived, natural state
Completely avoid the fabrication of meditation and meditator
The non-meditating, undisturbed, ordinary mind
Remains non-attached and non-separated
Free from hope and fear, grasping and letting-go
Rejection and acceptance, meditation and post-meditation.”

May all beings have happiness and the cause of happiness.
May they be free of suffering and the cause of suffering.
May they never be disassociated from the supreme happiness which is without suffering.
May they remain in the boundless equanimity, free from both attachment to close ones and rejection of others.

མི་མནོ། མི་བསམ། མི་ཤེས། མི་དཔྱོད། མི་སྒོམ། རང་སར་བཞག
