Contemplation: The Three Natures

After reviewing the guidelines for practice, take the following as your object of contemplation:
The lion that exists for the emotions is called imaginary. The apparent existence of the lion is called dependent. The nature of the gold does not change; therefore, it is called perfected.
from the Treatise on the Golden Lion by Fa-Tsang; full text provided by The City of 10,000 Buddhas here
