Virtual Sit-and-Share Topic 04-11-2019

The practice of all the bodhisattvas is to recognize delusion
Whenever one is confronted by adversity or misfortune.
For these sufferings are just like the death of a child in a dream,
And it’s so exhausting to cling to delusory perceptions as real.

~ by Gyalse Tokme Zangpo [The Thirty-Seven Practices of Bodhisattvas]

All suffering is like the death of your child in a dream.
To take such delusive appearances as true, how exhausting!
Therefore, whenever you encounter unpleasant circumstances,
To see them as deceptions is the practice of the Bodhisattva.

~ Alternative translation (Gyalse Tokme Zangpo – The Thirty-Seven Practices of Bodhisattvas)
