THE PATH LESS TRODDEN
One is truly a seeker who is
Unattached to desires, has the three
Pure actions – faith, universal responsibility,
Practice without purposeful motivation -,
Has conquered anger, is
Devoted to supreme good qualities,
Does not swerve from the Teaching,
Sees profound reality,
And longs for enlightenment.
One is truly a seeker who wishes to help,
Who does not notice injury, who
Tolerates harm from others,
Is brave, vigilant, very learned, and
Dedicated to the interests of others.
One is truly a seeker who understands suffering,
Is not attached to one’s own property and wealth,
Is without hidden enmity or grudges,
Is skilled in meditative immersion,
Skilled in demystifying signs,
Is without wrong views,
And is inwardly composed.
