Contemplation: The Practice, 7

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

Though he practices concentration and insight as methods to aid one to the way, in the end he does not sink into tranquil extinction--such is the practice of the bodhisattva.  Though fully aware that all things are without birth or extinction, he adorns his body with auspicious features--such is the practice of the bodhisattva.

Vimalakirti Sutra, p. 74

Programming Note:  There will be no contemplation posted next week, as I will be out of town and away from the computer.  Continue with this one until I return.
