Nine lines on why it is not necessary to search for the view, practice, conduct, and result somewhere else

Homage to the Guru Jewel!
This uninterrupted stream of thoughts
is finally to be known as gnosis.
It is not necessary to search somewhere else for the view.
This undistracted ordinary consciousness
is finally to be known as practice.
It is not necessary to search somewhere else for the practice.
Your own mind, which has never been separate [from that],
is finally to be known as being the Buddha.
It is not necessary to search somewhere else for the result.

‘Jig-rten-mgon-po’i gSung ‘bum, vol. nga, pp. 173 f.

ལྟ་སྒོམ་སྤྱོད་འབྲས་གཞན་ནས་བཙལ་མི་དགོས་པའི་ཚིགས་བཅད་དགུ་པ།།
ན་མོ་རཏྣ་གུ་རུ། རྒྱུན་མི་འཆད་པའི་རྣམ་རྟོག་འདི། །ཡེ་ཤེས་ཡིན་པར་ད་གཟོད་ཤེས། །ལྟ་བ་ལོགས་ནས་བཙལ་མི་དགོས།
།ཐ་མལ་ཤེས་པ་ཡེངས་མེད་འདི། །སྒོམ་པ་ཡིན་པར་ད་གཟོད་ཤེས། །ཉམས་མྱོང་གཞན་ནས་བཙལ་མི་དགོས།
།འབྲལ་མ་མྱོང་གི་རང་སེམས་འདི། །སངས་རྒྱས་ཡིན་པར་ད་གཟོད་ཤེས། །འབྲས་བུ་གཞན་ནས་བཙལ་མི་དགོས།།

  1. Dear Jan you are expanding your Drigung commitment, excellent and if you find pearls (I am sure you will), related to our great Protector, the Lord of the Three Worlds (Jigten Sumgön), it is a great contribution our understanding of this early founder. I Am more interested in historical stuff as you know.
    As to the very general 9-line advice on the 4-fold stages – view, meditation/refinement (you call it practice, that would be related more to the next carya), conduct and result. Just these notes, churlish as they are: da gzod is better translated with “from now on…”

    your:
    …is finally to be known as practice.
    It is not necessary to search somewhere else for the practice.

    here sgom pa and nyams myong are tr. as “practice” better just meditative refinement and experience.

    just small things. Great t follow you on this blog.

    Best
