Awakening to what is apparently true
Three objects, three poisons, three seeds of virtue.
Columbus breaking the Egg, by William Hogarth (detail)
Whenever attraction, aversion, or indifference arises in you, do taking and sending to transform the three poisons into seeds of virtue.
Train in taking and sending alternately
Make adversity the path of awakening
Work with whatever you encounter
Do it even when distracted
Work on your strongest reactions first
Whatever happens, be patient
Don't be dependent on extraneous conditions
