 YANGONPA’S INSTUCTION ON TRAINING THE MIND
No compositething has permanence,So cut your ties to them and be free from clinging.There is no joy in the cycle of existence,So engender the disenchantment of renunciation.Mundane existence has no essence,So place not your trust in falsehood.Your own mind is the Buddha,So recognize this and behold it’s face.So it was taught. Again:Step outside the shadows of this life And grab the rope of the liberating path.The chains of distracting thoughts arelong;Make short the chains of procrastination.Even if you wish to, you’ve no power to remain;Think of what is most beneficial for your future.Difficult indeed it is to consistently attain a human existence;So take its essence when you have obtained itonce.Habituation to delusion comes easily,So send forth the spy of mindfulness.Skilled you may be in gliding along on sensory objects;Wake up, for they are of no use.Nonvirtuous mind-statesare without essence;So discard them completely, one by one.Death will crush you from the depths;So swiftly destroy this covetous desire.

 Again:Keep death in your heart; this essential pointEnsures your joyous effort remains free from overexertion and lapses.Reflect on the defects of cyclic existence; thisessential pointEnsures you experience disillusionment from the depths of your heart.Train you thoughts to ponder others’ well-being; this essential pointEnsures that everything you do becomes Dharmapractice.Make the teacher the focus of your thoughts; this essential pointEnsures that your mind and his fuse into one.Train [to view] the environment and the beings within as meditation deities;This essential point ensures you avert ordinary perceptions and identities.Whatever appears to your perceptions, leave them as they are;This essential point ensures cyclic existence is liberated naturally.This is the instruction on the six essential points. The four kings are as follows.Being mindful of death is the king of faith;Giving up mundane life isthe king of spiritualpractice;Seeing your teacher as aBuddhais the king of devotion and respect;Exhausting the food of dualistic perception is the king ofrealizations. Again it was taught:If you aspire to enjoy all happiness, apply the antidotes toattachment;If you aspire to be free of suffering; apply the antidotes to anger;If you aspire to attain the state of unexcelled enlightenment;apply the antidotes to delusion;If you aspire to self-mastery, apply the antidotes to pride;If you aspire toovercome all obstacles; apply the antidotes to jealousy.
