If you encounter many obstacles, tear down the wall of conforming to accepted conventions.
Do not let your resolve weaken, but rely only on the sense that there is no time to waste.
If you cannot awaken compassion, begin by extending compassion to yourself.
If blessings fade, arouse devotion and diligence.
If you encounter numerous sources of harm, thoroughly investigate your circonstances.
If you wish to benefit others, give rise to bodhichitta and recite prayers of aspiration.
If you act accordingly, you will be free of the harm that such flaws cause.
