Dear son, if you want to consummate your meditation,
Restrain yourself from bigotry and empty talk;
Think not of the noble glories of the past;
Stay in the valley (innate calmness) to which no men come;
Keep from bad companions, and yourself examine;
Yearn not to become a Guru;
Be humble and practice diligently;
Never hope quickly to attain Enlightenment,
But meditate until you die.
Forgetting words and studies,
Practice the Key-Instructions.
If you would benefit yourself,
Renounce talk and words;
Concentrate on your devotions.
Think not, my son, of meaningless word-knowledge
But concentrate on your devotions for thatness, which everywhere pervades.
Then you will soon attain the great Accomplishment.
