focus, purity, stillness

 

All that’s

important is concentrated

focus, purity, and stillness. Even when

you are engaged in doing things, this is not something

external. Take hold of them and return them to yourself —

this is what wondrous function is. The eighty thousand

sensory afflictions are immediately transformed

into eighty thousand means of transcendence,

and there is no more need to make

a special point of studying

with teachers.
