Realization does not arise out of words.
Understanding does not come from mere suggestions.
I urge all those who work for enlightenment
To meditate with perseverance and effort.
Endurance and effort overcome the greatest of difficulties.
May there be no obstacles for those who seek enlightenment.
from the book The Life of Milarepa
