The purpose of this meditation is to generate the feeling of being a pure Dharma practitioner.

This is my object of meditation for the rest of the month.

In Joyful Path of Good Fortune Geshe-la lists the eight worldly concerns and tells us that if we are not seeing progress in our practice, it is because we have not given up our obsession with them.

Instead of fixating on progress we shod focus on simply being a pure practitioner of Dharma.

I contemplated these points and felt as though I was not that important: that my wishes were not that important.

As I developed this feeling, I also felt free and safe from disappointment and anxiety.

I submerged myself in the feeling for the rest of the meditation session.


May all living beings be free from worldly concern.

Practice in the Meditation Break

I will try to remember that I am not really that important, and neither are my wishes.
