May I recognize all the manifestations
that appear to me in the bardo (intermediate state)
as being my own projections;
emanations of my own mind.

When you recognize the nature of mind, fabrication and effort are naturally freed.

You may try to support your family and friends, but at the time of death all other actions besides the virtuous practices of Dharma activities will have been pointless. So constantly apply yourself to spiritual practices in thought, word, and deed!

The non-created, self-radiant wisdom being actionless, immaculate, and transcendent over acceptance and rejection, is itself the perfect practice.

To be a meditator doesn’t simply mean to live in a cave; it means to train oneself in the true meaning [of the natural state].

To be diligent doesn’t mean to engage in various restless activities; it means to exert oneself in the means of leaving samsaric existence behind.

Your castle of earth and stone may be beautiful, but unless you dwell in the fortress of the unchanging, you must depart and leave it behind. So keep to the fortress of the unchanging!

APPEARANCES ARE NOT MISTAKEN

Appearances are not mistaken, error comes through grasping;
Knowing the grasping thought as mind, it is self-liberated.

THE SECRET WAY OF TAKING REFUGE

Lady Tsogyal, the Princess of Kharchen, asked the master: Concerning the secret way of taking refuge, in what object does one take refuge ? What type of person takes refuge ? Through which manner or method does one take refuge ? With what particular attitude does one take refuge ? For what duration of time does one take refuge? By which circumstance does one take refuge? What purpose or virtue is entailed!

The master replied: As to the objects of the secret way of taking
refuge, you should take refuge in the view, meditation, and action.

The type of person who takes this refuge should be someone of
the highest faculties who desires to attain enlightenment.
As to the manner or method, you should take refuge by means of
the view, meditation, action, and fruition. That is to say, you take
refuge with the view possessing confidence, the meditation possessing experience, and the action possessing equal taste.
As to the particular attitude, the view free from craving means not
to desire either to attain Buddhahood or to cast away samsara. The meditation free from fixation on concreteness and without falling into partiality cannot be described by any ordinary words. The conduct free from accepting and rejecting is devoid of falling into any category whatsoever.

The duration of time is to take refuge until attaining enlightenment.

The circumstance is to take refuge without desiring further
rebirth.

The purpose or virtue is to attain complete enlightenment within
this very lifetime.

All beings have lived and died and been reborn countless times. Over and over again they have experienced the indescribable Clear Light. But because they are obscured by the darkness of ignorance, they wander endlessly in a limitless samsara

As soon as one's mind is known to be of the Wisdom of the Voidness, concepts like good and evil karma cease to exist. Seek, therefore, thine own Wisdom within thee. It is the Vast Deep
