3. Don't think/ Let go of what is happening now/ mi shes
4. Don't examine/ Don't try to figure anything out/ mi dpyod
5. Don't control/ Don't try to make anything happen/ mi sgom

Mahamudra Instructions

Tilopa also gave to Naropa Mahamudra instructions

The fool in his ignorance, disdaining Mahamudra, knows nothing but struggle in the flood of samsara.
Have compassion for those who suffer constant anxiety!
Sick of unrlenting pain and desiring release, adhere to a master,
For when his blessing touches your heart, the mind is liberating.

Attachment and enjoyment
One of the most famous and important statements attributed to Tilopa is: "The problem is not enjoyment, the problem is attachment."

Drigung Kyabgon Chetsang Rinpoche writes:
“Sustain the fresh, non-arising mind without delusion.
In this uncontrived, natural state
Completely avoid the fabrication of meditation and meditator
The non-meditating, undisturbed, ordinary mind
Remains non-attached and non-separated
Free from hope and fear, grasping and letting-go
Rejection and acceptance, meditation and post-meditation.”
May you be safe from inner and outer harm.
May you be free from guilt, shame and hatred.
May you enjoy physical and mental wellbeing.
May you live with the ease of an open heart.
May you be awaken to your true nature which is an inexhaustible source of love, compassion and wisdom. _/\_ Anam Thubten Rinpoche.

མི་མནོ། མི་བསམ། མི་ཤེས། མི་དཔྱོད། མི་སྒོམ། རང་སར་བཞག
