The Progressive Stages of
Meditation on Emptiness II

The Vehicle of the Hearers:
Conduct & Fruition
Subduing enemies or protecting friends--whatever you do in this life,
Remember the view that the actor is selfless.
Recall again and again that this life is karmic appearances.
Remember the creator of karma is selfless.


When the true nature of selflessness is realized directly,
Since the cause of samsara has ceased, samsara will cease as well.
And since afflictions, karmic appearances and suffering have ceased,
Nirvana with and without remainder is attained.


At the Dzogchen Palace of Appearance-Emptiness, Sherab Lodro [Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche] spoke this extemporaneously, whereupon Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche immediately wrote it down.
