Contemplation: Guarding Ethics

After reviewing the guidelines for practice, take this as your object of contemplation:

If, lacking ethical conduct, one fails to achieve one's own purpose, the wish to accomplish others' purpose is laughable. Therefore, guarding ethics devoid of aspirations for worldly existence is the Bodhisattva's practice.

from The Thirty-Seven Bodhisattva Practices by Ngulchu Thogme Zangpo
