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
6. Rest/ Relax, right now, and rest/ rang sar bzhag


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.”

‘View like the sky’ means that nothing is held onto in any way whatsoever. You are not stuck anywhere at all. In other words, there is no discrimination as to what to accept and what to reject; no line is drawn separating one thing from another. ‘Conduct as fine as barley flour’ means that there is good and evil, and one needs to differentiate between the two. Give up negative deeds; practice the Dharma. In your behaviour, in your conduct, it is necessary to accept and reject.” Guru Rinpoche

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