Practicing them sporadically is insufficient. To use an example, when one paints a picture on a wall, the wall functions as the basis for the painting because if it is not there, there will be nothing to paint on. But even if there is a wall, if it has not been plastered one will not be able to paint on it. The plaster, for this reason, is the painting’s cooperative condition. Even when the painting is complete, the wall, the painting, and the plaster are all still there. In the same way, even as one meditates on the complete maṇḍala circle that arises out of the causal absorption, it is the expression of emptiness and compassion that arises as the deity.
The form of the deity should also be intensely vivid. In other words, you should not have to think about it, inferring its presence and appearance. Instead, it should arise before your mind in a direct way, with striking clarity. These are the four measures of clarity. Next are the four measures of stability. The first of these is immutability, which means that your meditation cannot be swayed by general flaws like forgetfulness and laziness. The second involves being steadfast in the face of the flaws that involve changes in the visualization, such as when it becomes hazy or vague.
