Instructions on the important keys
the Great Seal of absolute meaning (Mahamudra)
A vision of naked awareness
I bow to the King of the All-Wing, glorious teacher Vajradhara, which demonstrates the original wisdom of one's own awareness-knowledge!
Bowing, I will explain the oral instructions on the Great Seal.
Since this higher king of people, the Victorious, showed the state of perfect liberation, the gates of the Teaching are acceptable to the mind, which is (characterized by a certain) faith, level and abilities, are shown as manifestations of an unthinkable chariot. Wishing (practicing) the practice and instruction of the Great Seal of the absolute meaning, it is necessary to carry out preliminary, basic and final (teachings).
Preliminary (part). Teachings going before. Freedom and gain can be difficult and easy to destroy. The cause and the fruit are unmistakable. Understanding all the states of cyclic existence as suffering, turn away from attachment (towards them). Through a strong renunciation of the binding of the mind with the Holy Teaching. A refuge that truly liberates from being, there are three Higher, which dissolve in the Three Roots. A vow does not throw away anything because of (one's own) life, is born from the heart with faith and your understanding! Realizing the existence of a cyclic existence, meditate constantly on three kinds of enlightened mood, directing inexhaustible love for living beings-parents. While clarifying the inherent wisdom, (carry out) the ritual of repentance-regret about veils, pernicious and obstacles. (Use) friendly, which gives rise to a deep essence in the flow (mind). Be strong in methods that accumulate spiritual merit.
The main (practice). (Here,) when you are concentrating on the object of contemplation (there are) four (points): view, meditation, behavior and fruit.
The view is the Great Seal of the foundation (which is so). The original sphere of equality of cyclic existence and nirvana is unchanging, free from contamination, speculation and symbol-symbols. Incomplete, it covers everything. Has surpassed the ways of speech and mind. Own awareness-awareness-inherent wisdom as a great object of practice, the accumulation of merit, the power of listening, the speech of infallible attainment and realization, and the blessing-show understanding of everything.
Meditation is the essential path of practice. Fomiruyu understanding nine-part way. By the power of sincere devotion and three kinds of inexhaustible faith in the lord - the teacher, the jewel of the fulfillment of thoughts, purposefully perform prayers and receive four initiations. When you mix (your) mind and mind (teacher), stay in a not-for-manufactured state, nature, freshness, natural nature. Suppositions of mental engineering of three times, hopes and fears.
In shamatha-pacification practice, increasing in size. Whatever arises, rest in the liberation of the emergence as an entity-nature.
By means of the vipashyana arms, the compartments are the root and the base. (Then) you will meet naked awareness-knowledge, which is unshakable. (Rest with) relaxation in a vast (state) without fixation and without meditation. In non-conceptual bliss and clarity, do not distinguish between taste. There is no need for rejection in perfect nature when emptiness is experienced. Cut off attachment to the dimensions, when manifestations are experienced. Look at nature, which is free of three or four (aspects). When you do not stay in the formal (meditative) balance, such experiences also arise. Be (vigilant) as a thief that does not move (anywhere). This is an illustration of the inherent wisdom of the enlightened. The great perfection of the absolute meaning of all doctrines is the Great Seal, which is free from extremes.
Behavior. Whatever arises, unite with the river of awareness. Protect the preciousness of the desire-fulfillment - cordial obligations. Possess the nature of emptiness and mercy-cordiality. (Be) the treasury that accompanies the enlightened mood.
The result, fruit. Cyclic existence does not exist for discarding. Nirvana-pacification does not exist for gaining. Veils and delusions of the perceiver and the perceived are cleared at their own level. Own awareness-keeping - keep on your own level. This is indicated in the Great Seal of the Fetus.
Final (teaching). Increasing elimination of obstacles and errors helps in establishing stability in concentration. Getting used to it, you will practice without interruption. Cast off pride and nurture signs of attainment. Stay, knocking eight (worldly) Dharms into dust. Eliminate the roots of the attachment to clinging to the self. Burn the understanding of clinging to the objects of six clusters (consciousnesses). In particular, meditate on the teacher as the embodiment of all the Enlightened. By persevering in signs you will find and (fruits) prayer-requests. The holy protector, that is called with a passion, will come from the opening of brahma. Flaming grandeur as the light of the Great Bliss, unification in the body of all the Victorious. Through the greatness of the manifestations of light of the three vajras, the three gates are cleared. Because of this, by the strength of the flaming faith and devotion to the uncontaminated Great Bliss the teacher dissolved in the light. Mixing with yourself, stay in balance in the mixture of (your) mind and mind (teacher). All the shining and sounding phenomena outside meditation are acquired as the Seal of the Three Realizations. This song of pure faith is the heart-essence of all instruction. This is the Great Seal (revealed) by the power of kindness. Let this method and understanding instantly remove obstacles and the highest real achievements will be achieved! Because of this, adhering to key moments with sincere faith, you will have all the goals!
If you are able to practice (according to) the explanations of the way of liberation, the Great Seal, you will realize the infinitely great texts of acquiring (realization, be it sutras, mantras and tantras, like standing on the ocean.) And even in this state you will spread the Doctrine, activity-action, By spreading himself, driven by great qualities, you will come later (level) of non-return.
