Things To Renounce by Jetsun Milarepa

Postby phantom59 » Thu Oct 22, 2009 6:44 pm

A son, a wife, and flame to extreme,
Are three great fetters for a yogi.
The practitioner should leave them.
Prestige, enjoyment and goods like gems,
Are three great hinderances to a yogi,
The practitioner should renounce them.
Relatives, disciples, and rich patrons,
Are three great obstacles to a yogi.
The practitioner should forsake them.
Fatigue, sleep, and spirits like gin,
Are three great robbers of a yogi.
The practitioner should forswear them.
To chat, to joke, to entertain,
Are three distractions to a yogi,
The practitioner should renounce them.
