The first method is therefore to be determined to liberate them from this ocean of suffering. The second supreme method is to have a mind free from conceptualization, which means to practice without distraction. Even if we make only a single prostration, we should not just go through the motions mechanically, with our thoughts and words elsewhere. On the contrary, we should practice with a concentrated mind, and never be carried away by distraction. The third supreme method is to conclude with dedication.
If you opt for one side or the other, That is not the View. If you have a goal in mind, That is not the Meditation. If your conduct’s a contrivance, That is not the Action. If you hope and wish, You’ll have no Fruit. Those with faith will go for refuge; Those who have compassion will have bodhichitta; Those with wisdom will gain realization; Those who have devotion harvest blessings. Those who have a sense of shame are careful how they act; Careful in their actions, they are self-possessed; Self-possessed, they keep their vows and pledges; Keeping vows and pledges, they will have accomplishment.
Ours is not a tradition that inculcates anger and encourages us to fight; it does not encourage us to get involved with our defiled emotions. On the contrary, the Buddha has taught us to get rid of our defilements as much as possible. The point is that, having received the Dharma teachings, we should find when we examine ourselves, that, even though we may not have been able to eradicate our defilements totally, our anger has at least diminished a little. We should find that, even if we do get angry, we are less involved and are able to keep ourselves in check.
