Sample text

The beings in the hot hells receive cooling rain, those in the cold hells receive w arm ing sun­ shine, h u n g ry ghosts receive food and drink, animals receive w isdom, hum ans fulfil all their wishes and needs, dem i-gods receive peace and satisfaction, and gods gain freedom. We develop the conviction that they are all fully satisfied and experiencing uncontam inated bliss; and we generate a feeling of great joy at their newly fo u n d h ap ­ piness. We then m aintain this feeling of joy by m editating single-pointedly on it for as long as possible.

W ere the objects of these practices? O ther living beings. W ithout them we w ould not have been able to create the causes of a hum an rebirth. It is through their kindness that we have attained this precious hum an life, which is more m eaningful than a w hole universe full of jewels. O ur day-to-day needs are provided through the kindness of others. We brpught nothing w ith us from our former lives, yet as soon as we were born we were given a home, food, clothes, and everything we needed - all provided by the kindness of others.

The unfindability of the m ind through investigation is a clear indi­ cation that it does not exist from its own side. We should meditate for as long as possible w ith single­ pointed concentration on this emptiness, or lack of inherent existence, of the mind. This meditation is called 'close place­ ment of mindfulness of the mind'. In the same way we can examine our feelings and meditate single-pointedly with mindfulness on their lack of inherent existence. This m edi­ tation is called 'close placement of mindfulness of feelings'.
